Yesterday started very early for me for a Saturday. I had to be at our Bountiful Baskets volunteer site at 6am. You volunteer for an hour, feel good about it, and then take your bounty home to enjoy.
This is all my bounty. Yummy! Your basket includes 50% veggies and 50 % fruit. I also got an Easter hostess box with more yummy veggies. I also bought 5 loaves of 9 grain bread as well, you can barely see it in the corner of the image. ( No, the wine was not included.)
Bountiful Baskets is such a great organization. Yesterday was the first time it had been held in my town. Usually I had to drive over an hour to get some fresh, local veggies. Currently in my town this is done every two weeks.
I am really looking forward to this adventure every other week. It is fun and a great way to meet some new people.
Even with my own garden, I figured I could still volunteer and get some veggies at least once a month, maybe I can talk to one of the churches here and donate some food to them.
They also wanted to volunteer, however; the site coordinator said they were unable to carry any boxes,so it was a no-go. Look how disappointed they are.
