Each year, almost 3,000 members order Community Boxes from our menu. Where do they go? How do they help make a difference? We’ve partnered with charitable organizations across the state and in your area. Their efforts combined with the donations of our members means that hungry people get fed… and they get local, healthy fruits & veggies from The Produce Box!
We’ve worked with the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle in the Triangle for more than five years. They don’t just feed the hungry but also teach skills for self-sufficiency and pioneer solutions to END hunger. Over 42% of what the Food Shuttle distributes is fresh produce — so their partnership with The Produce Box was a natural!
“So far in 2017, The Produce Box has donated over 3,200 pounds of fresh produce to help feed those people in our region that are food insecure. This generous donation allows for the production of over 2,740 meals to children and adults. Passing along our heartfelt thanks!!!” said Dave Koch, Executive Director of Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
Our newest community partner this year is Second Harvest of Metrolina in the Charlotte area. We lovebringing them our Community Box fruits & veggies because the number one goal at Second Harvest is to end child hunger. There are 188,000 children in their region alone at risk of hunger every day.
So THIS is where our Community Boxes are going! In addition to the organizations listed here, we also donate Boxes to churches and smaller charities like Nourish NC in Wilmington, Backpack Beginnings in the Triad and the USO of North Carolina in Raleigh and the Fayetteville area and more.
