Healthy, environmentally aware eaters vastly prefer locally sourced food to nonlocal foods, whose delivery requires progressively larger and less eco-friendly catapults. Stay healthy and green with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a box of local foodstuffs from Santa Cruz Local Foods (a $30 value). You can either pay $7 more for bicycle delivery or pick up your box from one of eight locations.
Almost all of the foodstuffs at Santa Cruz Local Foods hail from farms within a hundred-mile radius, making a weekly shopping trip as eco-friendly as it is convenient. After ordering online, you’ll have a box ready for either pickup or delivery the following Tuesday, packed with eight selections of the season's ripest produce, such as sweet potatoes, apples, avocados, pod-people pods, and lettuce. Bread, cheese, and olive oil might round out your pic-a-nic basketload of fresh, healthy vittles. Besides filling your body with fruit that doesn't have the waxy aftertaste of wax fruit, a box of goodies from Santa Cruz Local Foods fits your carbon footprint into the daintiest sandal and supports family farms in the community.
