So remember that bounty box I was talking about? Well it’s time I give you some details on it, because I’ve decided it’s pretty freaking sweet. What is a bounty box you ask? It’s a giant box filled with tons of local produce, whatever is in season, delivered to a convenient location for pick up.
If you haven’t heard of Relay Foods, they’re a service that basically does your grocery shopping for you. You fill up your cart online, and they pack it up, and then drop it off at a specified pick up location, which for me, is at my workplace.
Reasons why I love it:
- Um, hello convenience!
- I’ve realized it can save me money, by eliminating impluse purchases
- It also helps me with my meal planning (no more forgetting things!)
- They have groceries from all different places, so I don’t have to go to Ellwoods, Whole Foods and Kroger
Those are some of the reasons I love it, but I’m sure you’d have your own reasons.
Full disclosure: I received this bounty box for free, in exchange for a review. But all opinions are my own!
So for my first Relay Foods order, I got a “bounty box” of produce. It came filled with potatoes, turnips, a giant butternut squash, some other sort of squash, apples, and quail eggs. This is a “half share” which is about $40, and the pick up service is free.
All of the vegetables were fresh, and they’re from local farms, which is awesome! It was also fun getting an assortment of produce that I might not have tried otherwise. I mean, how else would I have decided to try making those turnip and potato cakes?
I’ve already placed another regular grocery order, and I’m shocked at how the prices are pretty compareable to the regular store, for most things. I’m really excited to not have to make a separate trip to the store.
Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to go use my giant butternut squash to make these amazing butternut squash fries…
Now if you live in Virginia and want to try Relay Foods for yourself, I’ve got a little bonus for you!
