Today, I am answering an email on here!
What comes in a weekly pick-up with your food share?
Each week is slightly different.
Early Spring you get a lot of lettuce and spring harvesting vegetables. It depends on what food is ready for harvesting and if there is enough for everyone in the Food Share group.
1 bunch of Kale
1 head of lettuce
1 large bag of Spring Lettuce Mix
1 Cabbage head
1 large bag of shelled peas
1 large bag of sugar snap peas
1 head of broccoli
2 small zucchini
and not pictured black raspberries
Please keep in mind that I pick up every Wednesday. This is just this weeks grab!
I special ordered 1 pound spinach, 1 pound kale and asparagus. ($9.00)
While it is fresh and cheap - I am freezing for the winter months!
"Special Ordering" - Each week there is a large list of items that you can purchase separate. These items vary from pastured eggs, Raw honey, Agave Nectar, Popcorn and the list goes on and on. I think that this weeks list was 20 + items.
There is also a bin of "extra's." This box is a free of all! This week there was Fava Beans, Basil, Marjoram and cutting celery.
How much does a food share group cost?
The food share group we are involved in offers a full and half share. A full share costs $520 and a half share costs $330. Our food share started in May and goes through October, or until the crops is finished.
Our friends, who referred us to the food share said that last year the breakdown ending up being about $22.oo a week.
$22.00 a week for an abundance of fruits and vegetables!!!!
I will take it!!!! :)
