Fresh Food Boxes are filled with 12 to 15 varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables.

With the contents changing weekly, it’s an affordable and exciting way to eat healthy food. Bulk buying at wholesale prices makes our boxes more affordable than buying produce at retail stores.

Although we are a non-profit organization, the Fresh Food Box is not free. Customers pay for their produce, thereby allowing them the power and dignity to control their own food needs. The boxes are kept affordable so that anyone can buy a box.

How it Works

Fresh Food Boxes come in two sizes and FoodShare accepts CASH and SNAP EBT.

A Large box costs $20 if paying cash. If you are a SNAP participant and use your SNAP card to purchase your box, your SNAP will be charged only $10 and you receive an instant $10 Healthy Bucks match to cover the rest of the cost.

A Small box costs $15 if paying cash. If you are a SNAP participant and use your SNAP card to purchase your box, your SNAP will be charged only $5 and you receive an instant $10 Healthy Bucks match to cover the rest of the cost.

If you need additional information, please give us a call at 803-851-4461.

Our system is unique. You can order Fresh Food Boxes from various partner sites throughout the city or through a neighborhood coordinator in your area. It’s a fun way to meet new people and get a box of good, wholesome food.

Each Fresh Food Box comes with a recipe insert chock full of ideas on how to use the produce contents that week.

Simply place your order in person at the Columbia FoodShare Hub, one of our Pick-Up Sites in Columbia or with one of our locations in other cities!
