When & how did you begin participating with Bountiful Baskets?
I started getting baskets in March 2013. I saw a flyer at the rec center and figured I would try it out. The produce couldn’t have been any worse than what I was buying locally.
Why did you decide to become a Site Coordinator?
I decided to become a site coordinator because Bountiful Baskets is something I believe in and if you want to keep something around you work it!
