Changes to Delivery Rates
We’ve been operating Farm Box by 409 + Co for a little over a year now. Over the course of the year, we’ve been privileged to work with incredible farmers, entrepreneurs, partners, and customers. We’ve been able to work with La Cocina distributing over 2,000 Community Food Boxes across the Bay Area supporting Women Owned Food Businesses. We’ve also donated over 20,000 lbs of produce to local food shelters via Food Runners.
While our mission hasn’t changed too much, it has expanded to supporting local and small businesses through times of abundance and not just hardship. Currently, farmers aren’t in a time of abundance, they are dealing with labor shortages, drought, and anticipating a challenging Summer. Through all of this, we’ve been able to continue to work with our farmers at their prices and pay our drivers and team fair and liveable wages.
With the support of our customers, family, and friends, we’re pleased to be able to continue paying our drivers a great compensation while offering our customers cheaper delivery.
As of May 30th, 2021, delivery rates across the bay area are now $9.99.
While, moving forward, that doesn’t change much, it does have some effects for our existing Subscribers and Market Members.
For existing Subscribers:
Any existing subscriptions will automatically be modified to $9.99 delivery.
For existing Market Members:
Market Membership will have new pricing moving forward -
- For monthly membership: $19.99
- For semi-annual membership: $99.99
Customers with existing Market Memberships will be automatically changed to the new pricing that corresponds to their membership payment plan.
Our goal at Farm Box is to give local farms and small businesses the opportunity to grow and reach new heights. We couldn’t do that without out customers and supporters so we are actively looking for ways to provide more opportunities to save.
