Hi Everyone! Hope you enjoyed last weeks produce! This will be my last week as the Market Coordinator as I move in a new direction. Barb Wong will be taking over my position so be sure to say hi to her! Its been a pleasure meeting all of you and I hope you continue to enjoy the program!
We are continuing to offer a $10 Produce Box with a sliding scale option.
The Box Includes:
1 lb Broccoli
2 lb Carrots
3 medium Onions
1 head Romaine Lettuce
1 bunch spinach
2 lb Potatoes
4 small Apples
2 bunches radishes
Please Note: Fruits and Veggies in the box may change due to availability/price. Thanks for your understanding.
We may be able to include extra vegetables and fruit donated from our wholesaler. Even at this time when food is more difficult to access, there is an abundance of food being wasted due to closed restaurants and businesses. We are doing our best to rescue this food with our limited capacity, making sure it passes a quality standard before including it with your order.
How our sliding scale payment works: The $10 box price is the wholesale price we pay for the food. However, we know that some of you cannot afford the $10 box price in these difficult times. A few generous supporters have made it possible that we are able to offer boxes at a subsidized price of $5. The $5 box price is for those of you who are struggling and cannot afford it otherwise. We are also offering some boxes for free. Please request a free box if you cannot afford fresh veggies and fruit. We want to make sure we are able to support those in the community who wouldn’t otherwise have access to healthy food at this time.
To order please click this link to fill out our google form. Do not reply to this email to order. Pick up is on Wednesday May 27th between 12:15 pm and 1:30 pm at 2670 Victoria Drive.

Thank you so much for supporting us and your neighbors during this time.
