Our ready-to-go boxes cut down on precious staff & volunteer time at food banks that receive mostly bulk products that must then be re-packed into bags and boxes for distribution. 

"These food boxes will be delivered to homebound clients who cannot leave their home to come to our grocery center," says Michael McCormick, Director of Operations at Project Open Hand, a San Francisco-based nonprofit that delivers food and meals. "We're able to deliver more than 400 boxes to homebound clients per month. Receiving these ready-to-go boxes is a huge operational relief and provides those in need with high quality produce in this unprecedented time." 

FruitGuys production team packing FoodWorks boxes donated to Project Open Hand in San Francisco, CA and then distributed to neighbors in need.
