Fresh Food Box

Fresh Food Box is a food access program from GrowNYC. You can buy fresh, healthy, and primarily regionally grown produce at well below traditional retail prices. The produce in each Fresh Food Box is the best of what’s seasonally available.

How Students Can Get a Fresh Food Box

Sign up at our counter on Thursday afternoons. You’ll pick up your fresh produce on the following Thursday afternoon. Remember to place your order every week!

Days: Thursdays
Time: 3:30 – 6:30pm
Place: Counter Table, 3rd Floor, North Building

Vouchers

In an effort to provide all students with access to nutritious food choices, we offer vouchers to students who cannot afford to cover the cost of the Fresh Food Box. To learn more about your food security options, please contact Chris Aviles.
