Fresh Midwest supports local fresh food initiatives and is partnering with the Chicago Botanic Garden to offer the Veggie Box. This packet includes fresh, locally grown produce such as kale, arugula, and collard greens, along with recipes and nutritional information. Bring the fresh taste of the Chicago Botanic Garden into your home with this delicious NEW option!
- For every Veggie Box sold, Fresh Midwest will donate $5 back to Windy City Harvest, the Garden’s urban agriculture education and jobs-training initiative to help build a local food system, healthier communities, and a greener economy.
- The Veggie Box is modeled after VeggieRx, an innovative program developed by Windy City Harvest that provides free produce packs and nutrition education to people with diet-related diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease.
