By providing culturally relevant foods that align with our neighbors’ preferences, food waste is reduced, diet quality is improved, and a dignified experience is ensured for all.

We have multiple meal basket options for your to choose from.  Examples of some items are listed above.  A full list will be sent to you after you register.
