NB: Appetites and times that you are home for meals may vary but as a guide we have found this is accurate
The contents of the box will vary slightly each week due to seasonal changes and quality at the markets on the day. As a guide the staples will be:
Zucchini, Lettuce, Cucumber, Capsicum, Carrots, Onions, Sweet Potato, Potato, Pumpkin, Broccoli, Tomato, Punnet Tomato, Mushrooms, Pineapple, Watermelon, Bananas, Apples, Oranges, Peaches, Pears, Melons & Stone Fruits (when in season). We also add 1 Litre Freshly Squeezed OJ, Natural Yoghurt (with a fruit topping on the side) and Bread (Turkish/ Lebanese Wraps/ Sourdough for example). This will vary slightly with other market specials as they arise week to week. For example, mangoes, melons, celery, plums, baby spinach, spinach, corn, strawberries, squash, cauliflower, grapes may be used instead of some other items if in season. QUALITY of produce on the day is our priority.
This is an initiative we launched in April 2019 where clients can voluntarily donate a dollar (or more) to their order. All funds raised will cover the cost of a $50 mixed box to be delivered to a local family in need. For this initiative to be viable weekly, we need monetary donations AND nominations of needy Central Coast based families. Please message us privately via our FB page if you would like to nominate a recipient. You can make a donation within your online order.
