Healthy Fundraisers for Schools & Community Programs

Are you a parent, grandparent, or teacher looking for a healthy alternative to your school’s fundraising events? Look no further, we have the answer for you. We will donate $5.00 to the school for each box sold. It takes selling just a 100 boxes to gift your school $500! We have three different produce and fruit boxes to choose from. If your school would like to plan a fall fundraiser, please contact Nicole at 386.753.4565.

Veggie Unearthed: Key Limes


Your Key Limes came to us from Cimporia Citrus in Pierson, FL — less than 100 miles from most of our customers homes.

Key limes are native to Southeast Asia and was first introduced to America by Spanish explorers traveling to the Florida Keys. Later the key limes spread to subtropical areas of Mexico, Florida and California. These tasty little treats are known for the tart and bitter taste that differs from other limes. They are small in size, have a tough thin rind, and are a yellowish green when ripe. So don’t be surprised to find a mix of yellow and green limes in your box this week.

So what can you do with key lime besides Key Lime Pie? Here are a few ideas to get you started in the kitchen (includes key lime pie):

Be sure to add more key limes (5 for $1.00) from the store depending on your recipe requirements.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Returning your produce box clean and undamaged means that we can use it again and again. This keeps costs down, minimizes landfill waste and keeps our carbon footprint smaller. Boxes that aren’t returned will incur a $5.00 replacement fee, so be sure to put it out for pickup!
