To keep in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I decided to donate my weekly produce box to a family in need. For the past few years, I have been a member of The Produce Box, a local business that provides locally grown fruit and veggies to the Raleigh/Durham area (theproducebox.com). The produce is amazing and it is a great way to support local farms and businesses. The Produce Box has teemed up with a few organizations such as the Interfaith Food Shuttle and the Food Bank of NC to deliver boxes to families in need. My Mom was part of a similar organization in her hometown that supported local farms. We enjoyed exchanging recipes using whatever veggies we received that week. She was a wonderful cook and I loved helping her in the kitchen as a little girl and as I got older.
