Since the pandemic started in 2020, food insecurity have skyrocketed in Detroit. With food prices scaling higher and higher, more are expected to struggle. Because Neighborhood Grocery's mission starts with feeding people, we wanted to help our neighbors while our store was still in development. 

We are asking for those that are more fortunate right now to sponsor a piloted produce box for a food insecure family in the Jefferson-Chalmers neighborhood. Distribution of these boxes will be 7-9-2022 starting at 1pm. If this first sale is a success, we will repeat every Saturday until our store opens. Limited quantity of boxes. 

Box includes 4-5 days of fruits and vegetables, including but not limited to:

- Apples
- Oranges
- Pears
- Peaches
- Plums
- Strawberries
- Blueberries
- Cooking Herbs
- Salad Mix
- Onions
- Potatoes
- Tomatoes
- NOTE: Some of these items may not be included in the first or future distributions of boxes because of possible inventory shortages. 

This produce box is a piloted concept for Neighborhood Grocery. The store wants to figure out how to use mobility and technology to meet our neighbors where they are. Eventually, we hope to have boxes of pre-portioned, packaged, and boxed produce, meat, and groceries that are affordable and convenient for the busy Detroiter. 

Lastly, we are still accepting investors and donations to open and run our first location in the Jefferson-Chalmers neighborhood. When economies tank, the first businesses to close are usually the grocery stores because of their low margins, but high demands to operate. As recession talks continue, we want to make sure we are best positioned to serve our neighbors through these tough times.
