Eat Your Veggies!  - The Produce Box

When it comes to packing school lunches, think inside the box this year. Give your kids something that will make them do good, eat good and feel good. Pack their lunch box with healthy foods from The Produce Box.

In 2007 Courtney Tellefsen was a stay-at-home mom from Raleigh, with two children under five. She'd try, but couldn't seem to get to the Farmers Market, or at least not every week. That's when she thought ... if it could be easy and convenient, more families would be able to support  hard-working NC farmers. Thus The Produce Box began! Courtney delivered produce boxes to friends and neighbors! In just a few short years, The Produce Box has grown to support 40 farmers across the state. From one stay-at-home mom in her garage to 200 moms, dads and even kids helping their neighbors in the Triangle, Wilmington and the Piedmont Triad eat healthier.

The Produce Box delivers farm-grown fresh fruit and vegetables as well as local meats and NC-produced specialty items right to your door as well as companies and community organizations across the state. The Produce Box has no contracts or long-term commitments and offers a wide variety of options for members to choose for weekly deliveries. Stay-at-home moms and dads act as coordinators in the neighborhoods they live in.

How it works: Once you sign up for the service and choose which box you would like as your "default box" you're all set! You will get a menu emailed to you each week with choices for the following week's delivery. (See Options)

If you do nothing, you'll automatically receive your weekly default box delivered to your desired location. But you can also choose something other than the selected box menu  and/or switch out veggies and fruits of your preference. You may even skip a week as long as you inform them in a timely manner.

Giving Back: The Produce Box also connects you to the community!  Every box you order provides support for NC farmers, sends food to organizations like Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and directly helps feed needy families through the YMCA, Backpack Buddies and Veggie Van.

Like mama always said... Eat your veggies!

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
