Celebrating the +BOX Difference

In early 2020, a small group of innovators saw a need in our community, jump-starting what is now known as +BOX (PlusBox). Over the last four years, +BOX has continued to listen to our community and respond to their needs. 

USDA defines food insecurity as “a household-level economic and social condition of limited or uncertain access to adequate food”. Families who are facing food insecurity might find themselves relying on traditional food banks to help fill this need, typically receiving a random assortment of shelf stable foods to sustain their household. However, families who rely on traditional food banks often lack adequate access to fresh fruits, vegetables, and other essential nutrients. +BOX focuses on nutrition security, ensuring consistent access to the types of nutritious foods, with an emphasis on fresh produce, that promote better health and well-being. 

This is The +BOX Difference.

For +BOX families, this is more than just a nutrition assistance program. It is a reliable source of fresh food for the whole family, fueling them with essential nutrients that are so often absent from low-income households. It is a foundation for building healthy eating habits among their children, setting them up for success in school and in life. It is the autonomy to create their favorite meals with fresh, nutrient-rich ingredients. 

We are committed to filling a critical gap when it comes to food insecurity. +BOX is the only community-based nutrition security organization committed to building a healthier local food system by making fresh fruits and vegetables more accessible and available to children and families experiencing food insecurity. 

We invite you to join us in our mission to deliver healthy food and fresh ideas to those who need it most by making a monthly gift. Monthly giving provides organizations like +BOX with reliable and predictable access to resources – the same thing we are providing to our +BOX families - making it one of the most impactful ways that you can support our work.
