Bountiful Baskets--If You Have One In Your Area, Must Try!


So while doing the food stamp challenge, I was looking for a way to stretch the $20 cash I had in the budget on food... and some folks on Facebook told me about Bountiful Baskets. I hadn't heard of them, but I tried them this week and was pleasantly surprised.

For $15, I got all of this food in the picture attached here.

You can read more about them on my blog:
http://michysdishes.michelleldevon.com/2013/10/bountiful-baskets-st...

Check them out! If you need to stretch a budget, this'll do it. They have organics and fresh bread with no preservatives, cookies, granola, and other healthy stuff. You buy it all online, get a receipt, and then just go to the designated pickup on the right day and pick it up.

I was really impressed! The produce was AMAZING and they buy as local and sustainable as possible!



Just thought I'd let you all know. Check out their website and you can click on Locations and see if they have one in your area. I was surprised how many they did have. But of course, they're not everywhere.

Let me know if you decide to try them! I'm going to use them again after the challenge!




Love and stuff,
Michy

Wow! Look at that lovely produce. If I were in the States, I would definitely be doing this challenge with you.

Farah, I'm going to start another thread about assistance--research for the book.... and I'll need to 'quote' folks in it, so let me know if you want to say something to include in my book!

I'm especially interested in comparing the US to other countries when it comes to food assistance.

I've looked into them before, but there are none anywhere near me.

Not only a way to get inexpensive veggies, but definitely a good way to support local farms. Some I looked up even had an organic box option, so good support for that too!

Oh cool! I missed that before. Okay, I'll give you a personal opinion. I'll email you with a response.
