At four local restaurants, you can get boxes of fruits and vegetables delivered right to your car. The produce in these boxes is restaurant quality and very affordable at only $10 each. We’ll tell you how to get yours!

They first started selling these boxes on March 26th, and they plan to keep the program going until restaurants are able to open back up for regular business.

Joe LaGrasso of LaGrasso produce and Rebecca Hardner wanted to find a way to get this healthy food to those who need it, and together they came up with this idea. “We wanted to do something that would help our community by offering products at a great cost, and also help us sell product in the process,” said Rebecca.

Dustin Ryan Walker, the general manager at Social Kitchen in Birmingham, is the “champion of the program” and helps keep the wheels turning daily.
