Fresh Winter Box Map

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. July through November Fresh Foodbox produce is grown on farms in the Northeast; December through Spring Winterbox produce is grown on farms on the East coast, within a one day drive of NYC.
