Each week for the first 10 weeks of the school year, families were able fill their bags with a variety of produce. Being fall, there was lots of salad greens, kale, potatoes, enormous sweet potatoes, squash of different varieties, and more, including fruit! Delicious apples from Apex Orchard were purchased through River Valley Coop at their wholesale cost. This year we added a choice between Small and Large Shares, based on demand from past participants.
“Having the produce right here actually gets the children genuinely interested in eating it.”
“Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to participate. This has made shopping for my household much easier. It’s very convenient. Also, having fresh vegetables and fruit from a local farm is very convenient and greatly appreciated. Thank you!”
