Food Box Delivery #7

Food Box Delivery #7

Yesterday, the seventh Food Box delivery of the season proved to be the most challenging yet. While we cannot complain about the rain (we’ve been asking for it), we can suggest that weather did not cooperate for our producers as they harvested or for us as we delivered boxes. After a few other hiccups, we were happy to deliver full and diverse food boxes with three new items – honey, winter squash and okra! All the produce in this delivery was grown between 4 and 90 miles away. It came from 8 different producers in 6 different counties. Check out what we had this week…
