Since we’re food bloggers, we find ourselves dining out all the time. There are times, however, when a home cooked meal does the body good — especially after spending the last few days eating 10,000 calories. And when we do eat at home, we like to eat healthy.
One of our new obsessions is Hungry Harvest, a fresh produce delivery service that recently expanded to South Florida. Not only is it healthy AND convenient, but it also supports a good cause. That’s something we can get behind.
Signing up for Hungry Harvest is easy. Head over to their website, register and then choose the size of your harvest: Boxes start at $17 and are organized by the number of servings and how often you cook during the week. In the future, you will be able to select an all-veggie box, an all-fruit box or a mixed package. Once you place your order, all you need to do is make sure you or someone you know is available to receive the package on a Saturday morning.
When you do get the box, you might be surprised by what you see. Hungry Harvest uses rescued produce — produce that vendors were going to throw away for one reason or another (typically appearance). While the produce might not be the prettiest, we can assure you it tastes the same as its aesthetically pleasing counterparts.
Hungry Harvest does more than reduce food waste: For every box purchased, the company also helps those in need by donating one to two pounds of produce to Lotus House, an organization that helps improve the lives of millions of homeless men, women and children.
Honestly, we were a little skeptical at first about yet another delivery box service. But upon actually trying the box, whipping up some recipes and hearing about their mission, we were sold. We suggest at least ordering one box; you can use the promo code MIAMIFOODPUG for $10 off your first box. There’s no long-term commitment, so you can cancel anytime. With that said, we’re certain you’re going to stick around.
