What is the Good Food Box?
The Good Food Box is a non-profit program for families and individuals who want to purchase quality, fresh produce at a lower price than shopping at grocery stores.
You can purchase a family box for $20 or an individual box for $12. Boxes are ordered and paid for by the first Thursday of each month. Food is packed and distributed from a main site to local host sites for pick up the second last Thursday of each month. This means food is accessible at a time when some have less money available for buying food.
What Comes in the Box?
Every month the boxes are filled with fresh produce some of which is locally grown. Here is a list of some vegetables, leafy greens and fruits you may receive, depending on the season;
Tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, peas, beans, carrots, onions, squash, broccoli, spinach, potatoes, beets, apples, strawberries and cantaloupes.
