Bountiful Baskets

I didn’t do a lot this weekend. Over the past two weeks I’ve put in a lot of overtime at work so it’s nice to have a few days off to do nothing. My Hunni recently heard about a service called Bountiful Baskets. Every two weeks you pay roughly $15 and are given a basket of fresh fruits and vegetables. You can pay an additional fee for loaves of bread or granola. The website explains it a little better “BBFC distributes produce baskets, organic produce baskets, artisan bread and sandwich bread every other week. BBFC is a group of people who work together for mutual benefit. This is a grassroots, all volunteer, no contracts, no catch co-operative. Since there are no employees at Bountiful Baskets, we as a group pay rock bottom prices on your food.”

You have to bring your own box to put the fruit and veg in.

The snow is piled up across the street. I hope it doesn’t topple over onto that car.dirtroad.jpg

The road we had to take to get our basket. It is a 2 lane road by the way.busses.jpg

and some trees.

This is a great solution if you’re on a budget and a good way to help out your community. What are your thoughts on Bountiful Baskets?
