Today as we were distributing The Good Food Box boxes, we discussed the value of what is included in the box. As a group, we can use our buying power to purchase at wholesale prices and we pass the savings onto you. That’s why you can get so much more bang for you buck from the box than at the grocery store.
I filled my cart with the contents of March 10, 2021’s large box, small box, and fruit bag from a local grocery store. You can see just how far your savings go by comparing their prices with ours.
|They Charge||We Charge||You Save|
To summarize these images, the large box contains $66.42 worth of produce and we charge $25.00. You save $41.42! The small box contains $36.09 worth of produce and we charge $20.00. You save $16.09! The fruit bag contains $18.10 worth of produce (minimum – we often toss in extra loose fruit) and we charge $15.00. You save $3.10! These prices can change from week to week depending on what we get to distribute.
That’s not to mention all the little (and big!) extras that we receive as donations from time to time. And of course, getting out to see people in the community is a priceless value in and of itself.
Our Produce Versus Theirs
The above photo shows two cucumbers. The one on the left came from a big name grocery store whereas the one on the right came from our distributor for the Good Food Box. Wow!
