GOOD FOOD DISTRIBUTION
The POD is our fresh food distribution warehouse, located on Elizabeth St. close to downtown. This is where we receive deliveries, pack the Garden Fresh Boxes, and keep produce fresh for our programs in our 300 square foot cooler.
We partner with the Emergency Food Providers of Guelph, offering lower prices than wholesale distributors so that they can stretch their limited budgets.
Each neighbourhood in Guelph is unique, and the organizations that service these neighbourhoods know them the best. We partner with them to help maximize the good food they can have on their shelves, and reinforce the good work being done already.
We also distribute to schools in Guelph and Wellington County, delivering fresh fruits and vegetables to meet the needs of their healthy lunch/snack programs for elementary school children. We work with Food & Friends of the Children’s Foundation to ensure we are offering a high quality service that decreases the amount of time spent shopping, decreases the cost of fruits and veg, and increases the amount and quality of food that children are able to eat.
Because of the size of our warehouse and walk-in, we have the capacity to receive, store and distribute great volumes of produce. If you have extra produce to donate or any gleaning opportunities, please contact us. We can see to it that it is distributed to the Emergency Food Providers in Guelph.
