The Living FarmStand at Second Harvest Food Bank

The Living FarmStand is an innovative partnership between Second Harvest and Alegría Fresh, a pioneer in regenerative, zero-waste urban farming and is brought to life in collaboration with our partners at Bank of America.

Alegría Fresh has built a regenerative, organic, above-ground growing system, or farm, on 3,000 sq. ft. of our Food Bank parking lot. Their SoxxBoxx Gro System is an innovative urban farming technique that cultivates organic produce in above-ground planters. Second Harvest is offering this nutrient-dense produce for sale to the public weekly through our Living FarmStand.

The Living FarmStand FarmBoxx


We are offering FarmBoxxes at $30 each plus delivery. Each week your freshly-harvested FarmBoxx will include 2 heads of lettuce, a bouquet of leafy greens, assorted specialties and edible flowers. This nutrient-dense medley of organic produce is designed to be combined into a craveable Alegría Salad experience that’s heart, gut and brain healthy!

Our produce is harvested every Friday morning, then packed and delivered door-to-door before 5:00 p.m. We believe this is the freshest regenerative, organic and nutrient-rich produce box in the marketplace.

Your FarmBoxx may contain seasonal items such as:

  • Green Romaine
  • Red Leaf lettuce
  • Fennel
  • Tuscan Kale
  • Red Russian Kale
  • Celery
  • Red Veined Sorrel
  • Lemon Sorrel
  • Basil: Cardinal, Purple & Genovese

How to Order
Place your order each week by Wednesday at noon. Freshly-harvested produce will be delivered that Friday to locations within a 15 mile radius of the Food Bank.

How Your Purchase Feeds Our Community
The FarmBoxxes are designed to feed you and our community. Revenue generated by this truly unique “Farm to Table” program will power the jobs created to work our farm, as well as to purchase Farm to Family co-op produce at a seven times multiplier. Every dollar of profit generated by your purchase of a FarmBoxx translates into 7 pounds of produce and we project that this cottage farm will generate over 300,000 pounds of purchased produce annually. This purchased Farm to Family co-op produce will make its way to food pantries and recipient families throughout the county.
