The Living FarmStand is an innovative partnership between Second Harvest and Alegría Fresh, a pioneer in regenerative, zero-waste urban farming and is brought to life in collaboration with our partners at Bank of America.
Alegría Fresh has built a SoxxBoxx Farm which features their regenerative organic, above-ground growing system on 3,000 sq. ft. of our Food Bank parking lot. Their SoxxBoxx Gro System is an innovative urban farming process that cultivates regenerative organic produce in above-ground planters. Second Harvest is offering this nutrient-dense produce for sale to the public weekly through our Living FarmStand.
The week of July 20th we will begin offering weekly and bi-weekly subscriptions for FarmBoxxes at $30 each plus delivery. Each week your freshly-harvested FarmBoxx will include two heads of lettuce, a bouquet of leafy greens, assorted herbs, vegetables, and edible flowers. This nutrient-dense medley of regenerative organic produce is designed to be combined into a craveable Alegría Salad experience that’s heart, gut and brain healthy!
Our produce is harvested every Friday morning, then packed and delivered Harvest-to-Home between 3:30 and 5:00 p.m. We believe this is the freshest regenerative organic and nutrient-rich produce box in the marketplace.
Your FarmBoxx may contain seasonal items such as:
Red Leaf Lettuce
Red Russian Kale
Basil: Cardinal, Purple & Genovese
Edible Flower Medley (Fennel Flowers, Nasturtiums, etc.)
Combine all your FarmBoxx ingredients to make a unique and delicious Alegría Salad! Curious to find out more about each ingredients? Go to Alegría Fresh.
Place your order each week by Thursday at noon. Freshly-harvested produce will be delivered Friday to locations within a 10-mile radius of the Food Bank (we will expand the delivery radius to 15 miles in July). Click here and you will be taken to a secure order form powered by Square where you can enter all your delivery and payment information.
The FarmBoxxes are designed to feed you and our community. Revenue generated by this truly unique “Harvest-to-Home” program will power the jobs created to work our farm, as well as to purchase Farm to Family co-op produce at a seven times multiplier. Every dollar of profit generated by your purchase of a FarmBoxx translates into 7 pounds of produce and we project that the Alegria SoxxBoxx Farm will generate over 300,000 pounds of purchased produce annually. This purchased Farm to Family co-op produce will make its way to food pantries and recipient families throughout the county.
