Bountiful Baskets Food Co-op is a not-for-profit organization that allows families to purchase healthy produce for less. In order to participate and purchase these baskets, you must create an account on their website (it’s free) for a more customer-friendly experience. You can purchase the type of basket you want and the order will be saved on your account. Go to your participating Bountiful Baskets location with your contribution confirmation (AKA your receipt) and pick up your basket of fresh produce. Locations are marked ‘Week A or B,’ and are used to help staff and volunteers keep track of which sites they’re assisting. A calendar of date pick-ups are listed on the right-hand side of their website. If you are new, they provide step-by-step instructions.
For more information, please visit their website, particularly their FAQ page to understand how the process works and who to contact.
