Food Connect is healthy
- Incredibly fresh. Most of our produce has been picked a day or two before our subscribers pick it up. Since produce tends to degrade in quality and nutrient content over time, our local food distribution system offers a definite advantage over most supermarket equivalents. Find out more about the health benefits of eating local on our Why Local? fact sheet.
- Varied. By this, we mean our farmers have the freedom to choose varieties for their taste and nutrition content, not for their ability to stand up to long-distance transport. Our Why Local? fact sheet has more on this as well.
- Certified organic or chemical-free. Fewer chemicals are better for our environment, for our farmers, and for our health. Want to know more? Check out our organic and chemical-free FAQs.
