Food Box Delivery #8

Hopefully everyone had empty refrigerators before yesterday’s delivery! We packed TWO heavy bags of food for each customer. With the season coming to a close, we are trying to cram as many goodies into each bag as we can. Included in the 25-pound delivery were two new food items, apples and eggplant, as well as new varieties of tomatoes, winter squash, peppers, and potatoes. All the produce in this delivery was grown between 4 and 70 miles away. It came from 7 different producers in 6 different counties. Check out what we had this week…
