Equitableroots (Created by Women Organizing Resources Knowledge & Services) delivers fresh, low-cost organic and sustainable produce from farm partners to families in cities. One of their pick up locations is Mt. Washington Elementary School. If you order a box of produce by Monday before 10 am through their website, your box will be ready at Mt. Washington Elementary School on Thursday of the same week. Pick up hours are 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
Price for one box is $18. Vegetables are noticeably sweeter and tastier than the ones sold at retail stores, including Whole Foods. You will receive an email alert with recipes on Wednesday. One box should be enough for a family of 3-4 for a week. For example, I found Strawberries, 2 big bunches of Arugula, Meyer Lemons, Turnips, Red Cabbage, Grapefruit, Chiogga Beets and Naval Oranges in my box last week. Arugula tastes so wonderful so that I am eating a big bowl of salad every single day. By far the best way to make everyone eat healthy.
