Fresh Food Box Locations

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 $12 what would cost $20-$30 in a store. To make our shares even more affordable, all Fresh Food Box sites accept SNAP/EBT and Health Bucks.

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 $12 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
