HR sponsoring winter session of Veggie Box delivery program

The Office of Human Resources is seeking faculty and staff who are interested in joining the winter session of the Veggie Box delivery program sponsored by Farm Fresh Rhode Island.

Veggie Box is a biweekly subscription to fresh, local produce from more than two dozen family farms and orchards in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. Boxes are available in two-month session blocks from July through February.

The deadline to register for the biweekly winter session is Friday, Oct. 31. Boxes will be delivered Nov. 5 and 19 and Dec. 3 and 17. The cost is $100, plus a one-time, annual registration fee of $6.

Each box contains eight to 10 items and weighs about 10-15 pounds. Boxes are pre-packed, but the contents change each week as the seasons change.

Vanessa Ferreira, Newport County outreach coordinator for Farm Fresh Rhode Island, will staff an information table in the Miley Hall lobby from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25 to answer questions about the winter Veggie Box program.

For more information, or to participate in the Veggie Box delivery program, contact Cindy Donnelly at (401) 341-3160 or
