This isn't exactly an under-served community in terms of fresh produce.

Nope JH certainly is not! But the program has grown to include areas that aren't otherwise under-served (e.g., LIC/Sunnyside) but exist because there was enough interest in the community.

Personally, I enjoyed using the FFB weekly to discover fun ingredients and spark innovation in my kitchen. I don't know about you, but I find it tough deciding on my cooking plan for the week, so I loved getting my big bag of raw ingredients and letting that inspire me. They always included recipe ideas with each pick-up, and created a great community around the service.

So again, not mutually exclusive with any other already available JH food options. It's just something I know I'd utilize if it were available, so I'm trying to get a sense if others feel the same.

I think it sounds like a good idea and would be involved.

Great to hear! Thanks for voting in the poll if you haven't already. If enough folks are interested, I'll contact FFB.

Spou nds great to me!  I've heard about these programs and always wanted to join, but couldn't find a convenient one.  I like the idea of Diversity Plaza and would definitely join if this comes to JH.
