Price Change Announcement
The Fresh Food Box program is commited to a set of principles – sustainability, local agriculture, and affordable access for those who need it most.
We want to provide our clients with high-quality produce from family farms for seasons to come. In order to continue to offer Fresh Food Box programs in communities throughout NYC, we will be raising the Fresh Food Box price from $10 to $12 beginning April 1, 2015. What you can expect? The same sustainably farmed produce from the farms you’ve come to know. The same bountiful bags filled with variety and flavor. The same incredible produce, at a fantastic price.

GrowNYC's Fresh Food Box Program is a food access initiative that allows under served communities to purchase a curated selection of fresh, healthy, regionally-grown produce; the best of what’s seasonally available. Fresh Food Box customers can take advantage of the cost benefits of buying in a group, and enjoy the quality and variety of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share, with the flexibility of week-to-week purchasing.
