I thought I would let you know about a program called Treasure Box that allows families to purchase a box of food for $30 that is supposed to feed a family of 4 for one week. I have not tried it myself, but there are several pickup locations in my fairly small city (mostly churches). There are 3 different box choices, but their main one has lots of different meats, frozen veggies and fruit as well as pasta and desert. The website says the boxes are worth $60 to $100 retail. It may be a good option for many out there who don’t make everything from scratch (which I tend to do). -Coby
Has anyone tried out the Treasure Box Food Program before? I’d be very interested in hearing about your experiences — good or bad.
