Good Food Box/Good Baby Box

The Stirling-Rawdon Public Library is a depot for the Good Food Box and Good Baby Box programs. This program is run by Community Development Council of Quinte. This is not a food bank, and does not compete with the local food bank. It allows people to stretch their dollar by purchasing various sizes of boxes of produce and order baby formula and other baby items. Click here for delivery dates.

The Good Food Box

Established in 1995, the Good Food Box (GFB) Program provides fresh, healthy and nutritious fruits and vegetable to hundreds of individuals and families each year. For a nominal fee, participants pay for a Good Food Bag. The box is packed through our main office located in Belleville and shipped to depots throughout Hastings & Prince Edward Counties. The GFB helps families stretch their food dollar, reduce their food costs and meet the nutritional needs of themselves and family members.

The Good Baby Box

Established in 1999, the Good Baby Box (GBB) Program is based on the premise that healthy babies become healthy children. This program provides the opportunity for families of infants and toddlers to access healthy, nutritious foods early in life. For a nominal fee, participants can purchase formula, diapers, and baby food on a weekly basis. Depots are located throughout Hastings & Prince Edward County’s so families can access the program in their own community. To register, please complete the appropriate form on our Forms page.
