Treasure Coast Food Bank’s Produce Box Program Returns in October

The “Farm Box”, Treasure Coast Food Bank’s fresh produce program that was successfully piloted this winter and spring, will be available once again this October to customers throughout the Treasure Coast.

Created to increase the availability of locally-grown produce during Florida’s growing season, the program links local farmers largely from South Florida with individuals and families seeking fresh, nutritious fruits and veggies picked just before they are packed by Treasure Coast Food Bank staff. More than 100 different fruits, vegetables and herbs (along with recipes tucked into the boxes) were made available to customers last winter and spring.

To learn more about the “Farm Box” and Treasure Coast Food Bank, please visit stophunger.org or call (772) 489-3034.
