This week I received my first ever good food box!
Good Food Box is a community approach to fresh, in-season, local fruits and vegetables. In my community, there are three options, the $20 small, the $30 medium and the $40 large box. Each box is meant to feed 2-3; 3-4 and 4+ people respectively.
This is the $20 box:
I falsely thought I was strong enough to carry the 25 pound box (!) of fruits and vegetables home. I made it but it hurts to lift my arms to type.
There is so many things in it!
- 4 pears, 5 oranges, 5 apples,
- 1 large yellow onion, 8 green onions,
- A head of romaine lettuce, celery, 5 tomatoes, a field cucumber, 2 limes, a lemon, a garlic head AND
- 5 lbs of potato and 2 lbs of carrots.
This was the smallest option!
I’m so excited to cook and eat it all! So far Good Food Box is a major win!
