What’s in a Fresh Food Box? Approximately 9 to 12 varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as a recipe card with meal ideas based on what’s in the box. Every box contains the same variety of produce each distribution week, and we are unable to honor any special requests.
How much does a Fresh Food Box cost? It depends on how you pay. A box is $15 if paying cash or debit/credit card. If you receive SNAP/EBT, you pay only $5 per box in-person and must have funds available to cover the cost. See next question “How do I prepay for my box?” for more details.
How do I prepay for my box?
Credit or Debit – Payment can be processed over the phone. If you are new to the program, you will pay via phone or in-person (at pickup) for your first box for week 1 ($15/box) and for week 2 ($15/box) for a total of $30 if getting 1 box per distribution week. Then pre-payments will be made only for the next upcoming distribution for $15/box per preordered box. As with all orders, pre-payment is required. Orders must be placed by Thursday at 5pm prior to the upcoming distribution week. There is no limit as to how many boxes can be preordered if paying with a credit or debit card.
Cash – Payments should be made in-person when picking up your first box for week 1 ($15/box) and for week 2 ($15/box) for a total of $30 if getting 1 box per distribution week. Then pre-payments will be made only for the next upcoming distribution for $15/box per preordered box. As with all orders, pre-payment is required. Orders must be placed by Thursday at 5pm prior to the upcoming distribution week. There is no limit as to how many boxes can be preordered if paying with cash.
SNAP/EBT – Payments can only be processed in-person. Participants can get a single box for their first two consecutive distribution weeks, to comply with pre-payment requirements, and can then order up to two boxes per distribution week. Additional SNAP/EBT Payment Details: If you are new to the program, upon pickup of your first box you will pay for your first box ($5) and prepay for the second distribution week’s box ($5) for a total of $10 total payment. When you pickup your second box, you can then order up to two boxes per distribution week by prepaying for 1 box ($5) or 2 boxes ($10) for the third week. Reminder: There must be sufficient funds ($10) available on your card at the time of pickup/payment/pre-payment.
Is there a limit on how many boxes I can order? No, there is no limit if you are paying cash or credit/debit card. But if you are using SNAP/EBT, the maximum number of boxes you can order is two (2) boxes per distribution after your second consecutive box pickup.
Is the produce grown locally and/or organically? We purchase local and regional-grown produce when we can. Because of different growing seasons and the limited local availability of certain types of fruits and vegetables, the box will contain items not grown in the Upstate. We cannot guarantee produce in the box is 100% organic.
What days can I order Fresh Food Boxes? Fresh Food Boxes must be ordered no later than 5:00 pm on Thursday before the following week’s pick-up day. You can order by purchasing signing up online or call us (864) 412-4720 & Press 5. See full schedule above.
What time can I pick up my Fresh Food Box? It varies depending on where you designated when you ordered your Fresh Food Box(es). See Pickup Locations above for specific day and time based on Pickup Location. Please call us if you need to change your pickup location.
If you have not pre-paid for your box and have not picked it up within 20 minutes of the end of your selected pickup window, we cannot guarantee your order will be available. To ensure your order each week, you must prepay upon pickup for the following week.
What if I miss a pickup? If you do not pick up your box it will be donated. We do not have the capacity to store your box if you forget it.
Do I have to participate each time? No. You can participate as often or as little as you’d like. The opportunity to order is made available every other week.
