We are proud to report we met our fundraising goals! As we suspend the GoFundMe Adopt-a-Box program, we are excited to announce the beginning of a NEW box program with the USDA (see below for details).
Adopt-a-Box raised over $132,000 and distributed 5,280 twenty-pound boxes totaling over 50 tons of Florida produce! The Adopt-a-Box team thanks all who participated in the program on every level. The donors, sponsors, supporters, volunteers, non-profits, individuals, celebrities, organizations and businesses unselfishly came together for this effort. What an amazing collaboration with our South Florida communities!
NOW HERE'S THE GREAT NEWS ABOUT THE NEW BOX PROGRAM:
Unity Groves was awarded a $1,875,000 contract to partner with the USDA Farmers to Families Food Box Program to provide 12,500 twenty-pound boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables every week for the next 6 weeks to the South Florida community, distributed through non-profit groups, government entities, food banks, and community and faith-based organizations. Each 20 lb box created will be filled with 100% Redland-Raised and Fresh from Florida produce to support Florida agriculture.
Redland Ahead proudly participates with Unity Groves as one of the primary non-profits in the program to distribute a minimum of 2,400 of the 12,500 boxes each week, and will also host a weekly drive-up distribution at Larry & Penny Thompson Park to pass out 800 boxes every Saturday at 9am from May 23rd through June 27 (6 events). For updates visit Redland Ahead’s Facebook page: www.redlandahead.org.
Unity Groves will work with a roster of non-profits, governmental groups, food banks and faith-based organizations across South Florida to distribute 10,000+ boxes each week through June.

We are grateful for the wonderful support of our customers and everyone in South Florida wishing to support our local Redland farms. At this time, we have put our box delivery program on hold while we develop a comprehensive program for the upcoming tropical fruit season. Please follow us on Instagram and Facebook @tasteofredland. Please also join our mailing list to receive details in the near future.
We have decided to put Market Sundays and our Locavore Brunch Series on hold temporarily as we come together as a community to respect social distancing. We will keep monitoring things as they unfold and look forward to notifying you when we will begin resuming operations.
Thank you for your understanding and support.

Please support your local grocery store, farmers markets and restaurants that use local Redland-Raised and Fresh From Florida Produce. Ask their managers to carry your favorite items and make sure they are locally grown. Look for the TASTE OF REDLAND label when you're shopping at your favorite store.
"A preeminent component to sustainable agriculture is maintaining the viability of farmers. In this time of retail consolidation, heavy regulation and intense foreign competition from free trade agreements, the viability of all farms, regardless of size, is in jeopardy. Redland Raised provides opportunity, for those consumers that care about the source of their food, to make informed and educated decisions on what to purchase."
— Charles LaPradd, Agriculture Manager Miami-Dade County
