Thinking about this year and what helped us make it through, I have to give a shout-out to Farm Fresh To You, the wonderful organic box service we've been using for years.

During the beginning of the shutdown, when we couldn't get deliveries from anywhere else, Farm Fresh was there for us. We upped the frequency of our vegetable box delivery to once a week, and also started getting our other staples (eggs, bread, rice, tofu, cereal, nut butters, jams, fresh salsa etc.) through their grocery add-on service. Since March, we've been getting a weekly box from them with all the food we need.
Farm Fresh provides a direct connection with sustainable farmers. When we get produce from our box we know it was in the ground a few days ago. It doesn't come from Austria or Chile or New Zealand. It's grown by family farmers here in California.
I love that we are supporting farmers and their families directly, rather than spending money at Whole Foods or Amazon. Trillionaire Jeff Bezos does not need any more of our money.
And, Farm Fresh and its members give back. I just got the Farm Fresh year-end newsletter--40,000 boxes were donated to food banks and food pantries this year. I feel good that the donations I made are helping provide high-quality nutritious meals to the hungry.
