15 Dollar Box

What do you get in a Green Food Box?

While fruits and vegetables differ every month, the Green Food Box contains staple produce such as lettuce, potatoes, carrots and apples, as well as seasonal favourites such as oranges, kiwis, cucumbers and squash.

Every box comes with simple and nutritious recipes for a monthly featured fruit or vegetable, with more information available in the “Links” section of the website.
