The U.S. Department of Agriculture gives companies participating in the Farmers to Families Food Box Program leeway on what’s going in the produce boxes.

The Packer wants to see what Farmers to Families’ contract recipients are packing into their boxes.

Please send photos to with the subject line “Produce boxes.” Tell us what’s in the boxes, both in varieties and weights, and other background you’d like to include, such as how many boxes you’re packing and where they are going.

The Packer will post the photos periodically.
