Texas farmers who sell to restaurants, schools, hospitals have seen their orders vanish due to the COVID-19 crisis. Meanwhile, plenty of fresh vegetables are in the fields and plenty of people need fresh food! The Texas Center for Local Food is partnering with The Common Market food hub, Elgin Local Food Action Team, and FireWild Catering to pack these yummy vegetables into family size produce boxes and get them to you.
The Texas Farm Veggie Boxes will be sold online and available for pick up in downtown Elgin, Texas once each week for the next 10 weeks (through May 27). No delivery is available. This is a pilot project so we might have some kinks! We’re doing our best, as you are, to come together for our families and those most vulnerable.
Box price is $32 and the proceeds will go toward providing Texas Farm Veggie boxes to the most vulnerable families in the Elgin area.
As of March 22, only 80 boxes per week are available. Order yours today! If this week is a success, we can get more boxes each week. Should we get more? Add a comment below and let us know.
Together.. we are moving forward!
