“LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE THY FOOD” -HIPPOCRATES
WHAT OUR PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING:
"[The copay] is an incredible value for the amount that you get!"
"I really liked the variety, and the quality of the food."
"You can really afford to be extravagant with your experimenting because you have more of it. It makes you feel more confident to try new things."
"I think you feel much closer to the vegetables when you see them with their roots and everything else. Especially the potatoes- you get the great big thing with all the eyes on it and it really takes you back to the land. It’s wonderful."
"We grocery shopped around the box. Before we would buy snack foods and I would eat out all the time so this was really nice. It made us do things we wouldn’t have done before."
"I found out my new favorite vegetable is bok choy. When bok choy comes I’m like, 'mine!'”
"My daughter has lost a couple of pounds, and couple of triglyceride points. So [the program] has kind of moved us in the right direction."
"I didn’t want to let anything go to waste. I took ownership of that box and it was mine every week."
"My son has been eating a much wider variety of things. Some of the things he doesn’t like and I mix them with other things. And he is taking it and liking it. I am doing all sorts of things I have never done and it’s amazing."
"I am looking forward to the program starting again. I've changed from thinking, 'let me grab a cheesesteak' to 'let me go home and eat my CSA or all the food I made with my CSA that I still have as leftovers.'"
"When that box comes for $10 and I realize I just paid $7 for broccoli, it’s lifesaving in some ways. It’s such a huge financial relief. I looked at the health side, but now I’m looking at the financial value of it."
"With $10 at the grocery store you could by grapes and maybe a bag of apples or oranges. That’s it. I miss the whole gritty farm dirty. You have to wash it and get the mud off of it! It just tasted so different from grocery store fruits and veggies. I got a cantaloupe in my CSA box and I never liked cantaloupe but I tried it and I loved it!"
