What You'll Get
When food comes straight from the farm, it is less likely to be corrupted by curse words and high-profile corporate kickbacks. Stock the pantry with crimeless crops with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a fresh-produce variety box and one-year membership at Fresh Abundance (a $70 Value). Fresh Abundance offers free delivery to the Spokane area, with delivery times based on applicable zip codes.
A nonprofit advocate for the area's agriculture, Fresh Abundance brings fresh, local, and organic fruits and veggies to the hungry citizens of Spokane. Most of the in-season produce hails from farms within a 200-mile range, and the contents of the fresh-produce variety box rotates by the week (a $35 value). A recent medley included 14 varieties of herbivorous fare, such as leafy romaine lettuce and ravishingly red chard, as well as zucchini, broccolette, and carrots, all aspiring for a career in the field of crudités. Sweeter specimens have included kiwis, fuji apples, d'Anjou pears, and bananas. Only members have the privilege of ordering these vitamin-packed variety boxes, receiving them via free delivery, and wearing the organization's secret decoder ring. The year-long membership included with this Groupon will allow customers to order additional weekly produce boxes at an additional cost per box (a $35 value).
A brick-and-mortar grocery with an online-shopping option, Fresh Abundance passes all profits along to People for Environmental Action & Community Health (p.e.a.c.h). The goal of both groups is to supply the community with affordable, healthy, and locally grown food.

About Garden Delivered
Garden Delivered upholds a simple yet powerful mission: Make the Spokane community healthier with better access to locally grown organic fruits and vegetables. Each week, its staff members gather harvests from area farms within a 200-mile range and compile those crops into boxes that members can pick up or have shipped directly to their homes. The packages of in-season produce rotate weekly, and previous boxes have included romaine lettuce, zucchini, carrots, and red chard. The Garden Delivered staff keeps members informed on each week’s selection of produce with a scratch-and-sniff list posted on its website, and it also stuffs each package with a recipe specific to the box’s contents. The friendly staff loves chatting with members when handing over produce and will dispense advice on how to handle, store, and prep each fruit and vegetable.
