Have you heard of Bountiful Baskets?
Bountiful Baskets Food Co-op (BBFC) ”offers a conventional produce basket every other week (or weekly) which is generally ½ fruit and ½ veggies. The monetary contribution is $15.00 and is generally worth $50.00 retail. Organic baskets require a contribution of $25. To participate visit http://www.BountifulBaskets.org and check the schedule to see when your state is available to make your monetary contribution using a debit or credit card. Then, pick up your basket on Saturday morning at the time and place you chose when you contributed!” The process is very simple and so rewarding!
I get excited to go pick up my basket or baskets on Saturday mornings… it’s a surprise every week since you never know what is in the baskets! This week I decided to purchase one conventional basket and one organic basket to see if I could get a variety of produce and to be able to price compare them. I am happy with both of them and the boys can’t wait to dig in!!
This week I will be comparing my contribution to Bountiful Baskets to the retail cost of produce at the grocery store and will report back with my findings!
