Food Box Delivery #5

Food Box Delivery #5

We’re over halfway done with the season! Yesterday was our fifth Food Box delivery. For the second delivery in a row, we were able to source a local fruit – cantaloupe. We also welcomed a new producer to our program this week, Barnswallow Flowers and Produce. They are growing in Oskaloosa. The mother-daughter team currently runs a flower CSA and supplies produce to local restaurants. They sold us some fun and unique heirloom cherry tomatoes. All the produce in this delivery was grown between 4 and 90 miles away. It came from 7 different producers in 6 different counties.

Check out what we had this week…
