In collaboration with St. Christopher's Foundation for Children, NKCDC provides fresh, local and affordable produce boxes to the community. Boxes are packed with delicious seasonal fruits and vegetables, often valued at double the price. Additional fresh items including local eggs, meats, yogurt and jam are offered at affordable rates.

  • Food comes straight from Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative. Everything is organic and is picked within 48 hours of reaching your table.
  • No need to sign up for a full year or full season membership—order by the week, whichever weeks you'd like!
  • Order in person, online or by phone, and use cash, credit card or EBT access card to pay.
