Hello Produce Box Shoppers!
We are experiencing some uncertain weather this week, and we may have to cancel this week’s produce box depending on the forecast for Wednesday. We will notify you of any cancellation by Monday, January 25th.
We are continuing to offer a $10 Produce Box with a sliding scale option.
This week’s box includes:
1 1/2 lb. BC ambrosia apples
1 lb. beets
1 lb. broccoli
3 garlic heads
1 head romaine
4 small oranges
1 acorn squash
2 lb. BC Yukon gold potatoes
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. 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.
Pick up is on Wednesday, January 27 between 12:15 pm and 1:30 pm at 2670 Victoria Drive.
Please allow up to 3 days for a confirmation and you will receive a pick up time window.
Thank you so much for supporting us and your neighbours!
