Lunchbox Pack

 

Have kids packing lunches or like having extra “finger food”? This pack is for you! Fill those tummies with something delicious and nutritious if you want those brains to fill up with reading, writing and arithmetic. We all think better with a full tummy and without artificial refined ingredients. So many kids “problem” classroom behaviors iron out when they start eating a clean diet.

See your state Contribution Page for pack details!

Carrots
Approx 48 lbs

 

Shredded, roasted, steamed, peeled and dipped, juiced, pressure canned, pickled, par boiled and frozen, carrots are multi-use! Roast them for a naturally sweet treat. My kids cheer when they see that big bag – it means apple/carrotjuice is on the menu for the week!

Grab some celery and onions or onions and bell peppers and chop up a bunch for mirepoix and holy trinity to throw in the freezer for easy starts to innumerable savory dishes!

White Onions
Approx 50 lbs

 

How do you like your onions?

 

White onions are slightly sweeter and slightly milder than their yellow cousins. These are a great option for serving raw in sandwiches, on salads, in salsas, guacamole, and chutney.

Onions freeze and dehydrate beautifully!

 

I always have chopped and minced onion in the freezer (double-bagged!) for quick toss-ins to almost every supper dish. I also keep on-hand frozen mirepoix, soffrito, and Creole holy trinity for easy starts to innumerable savory dishes. A crazy time-saver! Or caramelize a bunch of onions and freeze them in 2 tablespoon measures! Makes adding an extra-special punch of flavor so easy, and amazing topping a burger. Chop and dehydrate onions for shelf-stable seasoning, and grind some for onion powder just for grins! A whole mess of onions in many forms is a year-round staple in our house.

Dedicate some time to preserving onions as works for your family recipes, and you’ll be hugely rewarded in time saved later!

Jalapeno 
Peppers

Approx 35 Lb

 

Jalapeno peppers – a staple in many dishes that want a little (or a big!) kick! Think Mexican, Central and South American, and Southeast Asia cuisines!

 

Don’t think you’ll use a whole pound? Easy! Rinse, dry, toss them in a freezer bag, and freeze! Pre-roast and chop or slice for a fast and easy addition to recipes.

 

Cowboy Candy is awsome atop all kinds of dishes (or just as a stand-alone snack in my house):

Roma Tomatoes
Approx 25 Lbs

 

Salsa, Tomato Sauce, Diced Tomatoes, Roasted Tomatoes, they all start with Romas! These tomatoes will be the basis for so many amazing meals for your family.

 

This is a simple fresh salsa recipe that adds a punch with some dry spices – include or leave out!

Mexican Grey Squash
Approx 18 Lbs

 

This is the shorter, fatter, silvery-green cousin of the Zucchini. It has an almost sweet, nutty flavor and buttery texture. Its meatier flesh stands up very well in robust dishes and on the grill!
