Good Food Boxes Available at the Woodsworth College Residence

Let’s face it: it can be expensive to buy produce when you’re grocery shopping. Anything that comes in a box is usually cheaper and easier, and it’s just so hard to resist junk food if you’re studying. What if there was a cheaper, easier way to have healthy foods readily available in residence?

The Dean’s Office is working with the UTSU and FoodShare Toronto to bring you Good Food Boxes. A program that provides fresh, local, and affordable produce. The program for UofT is currently organized through the UTSU, but we’re working in collaboration with them to have the Good Food Boxes delivered directly to the Woodsworth College Residence!

You can order a Good Food Box on the UTSU website and it will be delivered to the Woodsworth Residence Front Desk. Deliveries will be taking place every two weeks for the rest of the semester.

How can I order a Good Food Box?
To order visit http://utsu.cfs-services.ca/ to purchase your Good Food Box online. Payment methods: Visa/Mastercard. Set up a student account first and then click on the Good Food Box icon (across the top banner of options – in the navy header). This will take you to a page where you can order. *IMPORTANT* Once you’ve made an order, it is important that you request that your good food box be dropped off at Woodsworth College Residence (the default location is UTSU).

Where do I pick up the box?

Why are we doing this?
