How it Works

It’s simple. You sign up for membership of our scheme, and every week we pack a bag of veg for you and deliver it to a community based pick up point ready for you to pick up. Here’s what you need to do:

1. Decide a bag size:

Bag sizeItems of VegTo feedGood Food Start price (monthly/weekly)Healthy Start Voucher equivalent (weekly)Solidarity price
Small6 itemsTypically 1 person£13.40 per month (£3.10 weekly)1 Healthy Start Voucher per week£43.50 per month
Standard9 items in slightly larger quantities2 people who like veg or more people who don't eat as much£26.80 per month (£6.20 weekly)2 Healthy Start Vouchers per week£70 per month
Family11 items in even larger quantitiesIdeal for a family£30.20 per month (£9.30 weekly)3 Healthy Start Vouchers per week£91 per month

2. Pick which Food from your culture bag

The majority of the items in your bags will be the same but different Food from your culture bags contain a couple of items that are different. 

 At the moment we are offering:

+ A bag that contains 2 items of yams, plantain, sweet potatoes, african ginger, etc (produce typically grown in tropical climates)

+ A bag that contains north European produce in season (produce typically grown in temperate climates)

We are keen to offer others too so get in touch if you think something will be popular.

3. Decide which community pick up point to collect your bag from.

We have just started small with The Granville as our pick up point. We are keen to expand to having more and will let you know when we do. If you have any suggestions of places that might be keen to host a pick up point, please get in touch. 

Our pick up point is:

The Granville, 140 Carlton Vale, NW6 5HE
Good Food Boxes available from 3-7pm Wednesdays
We will expand these hours after October. If it is not possible for you to pick up during this time please call 0203 488 5815 (Weds-Fri, 10-6) or email goodfoodbox@granvillecommunitykitchen.org.uk.

See a map here.

We also offer delivery to those who live within 1mile of The Granville and who are physically unable to collect their bags.

4. Fill in our sign up form to tell us what you want

5. Organise your payment.

If you’re paying the Solidarity price or you selected to pay by GoCardless direct debit, please follow this link to authorise us to set up a direct debit payment on your behalf . Payment for the Solidarity price is taken as a monthly payment that we take shortly after you have signed up and filled in our direct debit mandate. This will be a rolling monthly payment. 

Payment for the Good Food Start price can be on a weekly basis. To guarantee a bag, you must tell us a week in advance that you want one. We can accept payment on the day or a week in advance. You can pay by cash or card, or Healthy Start Vouchers. The prices have been designed so

+ a small = 1 Healthy Start Voucher

+ a standard = 2 Healthy Start Vouchers

+ a family = 3 Healthy Start Vouchers. 

6. Start collecting your veg

Once you’ve set up your direct debit, we will start ordering veg to go in your bag. There is a one week delay on our ordering so we need to know a week in advance who we are ordering for the following week. We’ll contact you to let you know when your first bag will be available for pick up.
