Fresh Food Box Locations

Fresh Food Box Price Change Announcement

The Fresh Food Box program is committed to a set of principles – sustainability within our local food system, and affordable access for those who need it most. We want to provide our participants with high-quality produce from family farms for seasons to come, and to pay our staff a living wage for their important work. We know too that success depends on you, the consumer. We are at heart a buyers collective – in this together. Please know we appreciate and value your participation. 

In order to continue to offer Fresh Food Box programs in communities throughout NYC, we will be raising the Fresh Food Box price from $12 to $14 beginning July 1, 2017. 

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. 

The Fresh Food Box GrowNYC's Fresh Food Box Program is a food access initiative that enables under-served communities to purchase fresh, healthy, primarily regionally-grown produce well below traditional retail prices. Through the power of collaborative purchasing, Fresh Food Box customers purchase for $14-15 what would cost $20-$30 in a store. All Fresh Food Box sites accept SNAP/EBT and Health Bucks, to make our shares even more affordable.

The produce included in each Fresh Food Box is the best of what’s seasonally available. From July through November, Fresh Food Box sources from farms in the Northeast; in the winter and spring, Northeast produce is supplemented with produce from carefully vetted farms in Southern states, like Florida. This ensures Fresh Food Box provides a wide variety of fresh produce year-round while driving sales of locally-available items such as apples, root vegetables, eggs, grains, and dried beans. 

How Fresh Food Box works:

  • Visit a Fresh Food Box site near you
  • Pay $14 (or $15 at workplace sites) in cash, credit/debit, EBT/SNAP, or Health Bucks for next week’s share
  • Return the following week to pick up your share containing 10-15 pounds of fresh, high-quality produce
