Healthy Food Delivery Services
One of the most important things you can do for yourself as well as your loved ones is to eat healthy, fresh food. However, this is not always the simplest task as accessibility and ease are key variables.
Grocery shopping, a high frequency task, can be quite an undertaking, from driving to and from the grocery store, walking aisle to aisle, lifting and placing food in a grocery cart, and carrying heavy groceries to and from a car. Additionally, distance, time and availability are other factors that come into play when shopping for the best food selection.
Thankfully, there are alternatives to standard grocery shopping that can increase accessibility to healthy, fresh food, eliminate unneeded stress for your loved ones, and provide you with a huge sense of relief. Check out these three popular options:
1. CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture)
CSAs allow communities to buy “shares” of local, seasonal food directly from nearby farms. Most CSAs offer weekly subscriptions in which a local box of seasonal food can be purchased at a drop off location or even better, delivered to your doorstep.
To find your loved one’s local CSA along with their food and delivery options, visit LocalHarvest.org.
2. Organic and Local Delivery Services
There are numerous types of organic and local delivery services across the nation that partner with local farms and organic producers to ensure communities have access to fresh, clean food. These services may also offer other healthy food options such as juicing boxes, meal kits, prepared foods, etc.
