As of May 2016, the Harvest Box program will no longer be available through the City of Surrey. Due to rising program costs and lack of funding, the program has been discontinued by the not-for-profit group responsible for delivery in the region.
The original Harvest Box program was started over a decade ago and began out of an elementary school in Surrey. The program has been bringing fresh vegetables and fruit to people in Surrey and throughout Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley for more than 10 years. The program was developed to encourage healthy eating, educate people on the benefits of consuming vegetables and fruit daily, provide value-added vegetables and fruit and support local BC farms.
