Hope you’re all staying well and eating healthy.
We are continuing to offer a $10 Produce Box with a sliding scale option.*
This week’s box includes:
- 5 apricots
- 2 lb. BC bok choy
- 1 lb. broccoli
- 2 lb. russet potatoes
- 1 large BC cucumber
- 3 heads garlic
- 1 bunch BC radishes
- 1 lb. large BC tomatoes
This list is subject to change based on seasonality and availability but we aim to have a balance of fruit and vegetables each week.
Pick up is on Wednesday May 26 between 12:00 pm and 1:30 pm at 2670 Victoria Drive.
There is always an abundance of food waste in our food system and we are doing our best to rescue this food, so we may be able to include extra vegetables and fruit donated from our wholesaler.
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 during this time.
*What do we mean by pricing with a sliding scale?
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.
