I’m not sure if you live in an area where this is offered, but have you ever heard of the Bountiful Baskets program? http://bountifulbaskets.org/
It’s a food co-op program where you contribute $16.50 every two weeks to get a ‘basket’ FULL of fruits and veggies. You always use so much produce in your weekly menu and I thought I’d share this information just in case it’s in your area and you were unaware of it. I love it – you don’t always know what will be in your basket so it’s almost like the TV show ‘Chopped’!
Thanks Tara. We don’t have that program specifically, but we have tried a produce co-op before. It was not a good value for us because there is some produce we don’t eat and invariably the box contained a lot of those (kale, radishes, etc.). Our local produce stand has amazingly low prices and we can choose what we like so no money is wasted. The program might be a great fit for others though, so thanks for sharing about it. 🙂
