The Good Food Box offers fresh fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices for all community members. Participants pay when they place their orders with their local host sites by the seventh of each month, to pick up on the third Tuesday of the month. Prices vary between $5 and $15 depending on size of box requested. The program is volunteer-driven and volunteer-run.
