You will have to make arrangements directly with the Güd Box staff to pick your box up at their location in south Edmonton the following Monday.

Please email to make pick-up arrangements if you’re unable to do it on the scheduled date.

Are food items organic?

The Güd Box is not an organic box. Although most of the items are conventional produce, each box contains an average of 35% local and organic items.

Where are the vegetables sourced from?

The Gud Box is a value-based produce box, meaning its main focus is getting as much produce in the box as possible for the price (lower than you can find at the grocery store). As much as The Gud Box strives for local and organic products, the majority of items will be conventional produce. Your box will come filled with produce that is in season, allowing for best-tasting produce at the most affordable price we can find. Therefore, The Gud box cannot be called an organic, local box, but a bountiful box.

What if I have dietary restrictions?

Dietary accommodations are not available. 

Each box comes with a mix of above-ground and below-ground fruits and vegetables.  You can always trade your produce with someone else.

How is the Güd Box supporting the NAITSA Food Centre?

$5 dollars from each Güd Box purchased from NAITSA’s website goes directly to the NAITSA Food Centre to support purchasing food for our hamper clients.

How do I take my vegetables home? Are they really inside a ‘box’?
All food arrives in a refrigerated truck inside a plastic tote packaged in two brown paper bags. Please bring your own bags or a box and cooler packs to take your food home safely. 

Please keep in mind that the Güd Box bags weigh approximately 20 lbs, and cooler packs are not available. Plan your pick-up accordingly.

Can I get a refund if I'm not happy with the purchase? What if produce doesn’t seem as fresh as it should be?

Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed by Güd Box.  NAITSA will be able to connect you with Güd Box for the refund process.

If I do not pre-order a Güd box, can I buy one at the truck on delivery day?

No. Due to the fact that the Güd Box contains perishable food, only boxes that are prepaid are shipped on delivery day. NAITSA does not order extra boxes for resale. 

How much food am I getting in my box?

A Güd Box order weighs an average of 20 lbs. Depending on the season and products offered, that amount can vary slightly.
