Ruth’s Gleanings is excited to increase access to healthy, fresh food through FoodShare Spartanburg, a branch of FoodShare South Carolina. The mission is to bring good, healthy food for all. We work with local and regional farmers and distributors to procure the freshest produce for our food boxes, strengthening the local food system as well as providing the most nutritious ingredients for our FoodShare customers.
FoodShare Spartanburg is a bi-weekly box of produce that contains 9 to 12 varieties of seasonal and mostly regionally grown fruits and vegetables. In partnership with Clemson SNAP-Ed, healthy recipes utilizing the produce are also included in your FoodShare box. On average, the food box contains 15 to 20 pounds of produce at a retail value of $28 to $33.
The FoodShare Spartanburg produce box is distributed every other Wednesday and is available to anyone who pre-orders by 2:00 pm on the Thursday prior to distribution. (see calendar below). The box is $15 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.
