"This program has supplied needed fruits and vegetables in a time when I didn't feel safe going out. It also reduced the need to include those items in my budget!" - Produce Box Recipient 2021
"It's been amazing to receive fresh fruits and veggies! I've learned how to prepare some dishes I had never even heard of. It's been great." - Produce Box Recipient 2021
How has receiving a produce box benefitted you and your family?
"The produce boxes provided by Turning Point CDC are an extreme blessing to me and my family. The choices of fruits and vegetables have made it so much easier to pursue a healthier lifestyle. I am able to use the produce in different recipes and because the boxes are delivered to my home, I am less tempted to go shopping for unhealthy options. Weight loss is one of the greatest benefits I experience from eating healthy and I attribute that in part to the produce boxes. Thank you Turning Point for helping me along my journey towards a healthier lifestyle and thank you for helping our community thrive and flourish." - Produce Box Recipient 2022
"It had benefitted us tremendously. It's really helped with our strict budget during the pandemic. It has also helped us maintain a healthy lifestyle!" - Produce Box Recipient 2021
