we get our first veggie van delivery tomorrow!

wait…veggie what?? community nutrition partnership is the non-profit that both mr. c and i work with — he became involved through a community clinic during his 3rd year of law school. i recently started volunteering in publicity and event planning. their goal is to increase access to nutritious, local foods and educate people on properly choosing and preparing foods toward the end of increased sustainability and health.

one of their projects is the veggie van, which is a CSA-type program that provides weekly boxes of fresh, local produce. every regular priced subscription purchased allows boxes to be provided to low income households at a reduced cost.

we just found out what will be in this week’s box: sweet potatoes, red cabbage, purple turnips, tomatoes, kale, and mixed greens.

on the agenda tonight: finding awesome recipes for all these cool items that don’t usually end up in my fridge!
