The Good Food Box is still looking for a home base on the West Shore.
The non-profit healthy food program needs driver willing to pick up food boxes from Fernwood for drop-off at a West Shore location, which also needs to be donated.
The Good Food Box has set up online payments, so a candidate would not need to handle cash, but could if necessary.
“Not everyone has a credit card. Not everyone can order online,” said Sushil Saini, executive director of the Good Food Box.
The Good Food Box has received dozens of emails from people on the West Shore wanting to be part of the program. Dozens of West Shore families are on a waitlist.
The program offers local and organic foods to anyone in the region. It stared up to help get healthy food to people who couldn’t afford it.
“We are strongly volunteer run and only have one employee,” Saini said.
The program runs bi-weekly and customers prepay for each box.
The program operated on the West Shore through the Capital Families office in Colwood for five years, but ended when Capital Families shut down.
