What’s the Fresh Food Box?
In 2019, we piloted a discounted promotion for NYCHA residents and/or those using SNAP called Fresh Food Box. Participants signed up week-to-week for an $8 bag of fresh, organic vegetables grown at Red Hook Farms.
This year, in response to the pandemic, we have been offering a free produce box since March, with vegetables mostly purchased from outside farms. Boxes are available every Wednesday, 2-4pm, to Red Hook residents in need. Pick up location is the corner of Sigourney and Otsego Streets, at the Columbia Street Farm.
