Relay Foods gives Northern Virginians Options When Eating Sustainably
How often have you gotten home too tired to even want to kick off your shoes, let alone turn back around and go to the grocery store? How close are you to the nearest store, anyways? A couple of miles maybe, or are you close enough to get there pretty easily? Well, convenience when it comes to grocery shopping is almost like the convenience of going to the gym in my opinion. If it isn’t on my route, or on my way back to where I’m supposed to be going… chances are, I’m not going!
Figuring out Sustainable Groceries
Relay Foods has made some really awesome options for their clients, whether they want to have the convenience of having their favorite foods delivered to them at their home, or delivered to their place of business! Much like the coveted Community Sustained Agriculture Programs or CSAs that some farmers utilize to bring farm fresh produce and products to the consumer, Relay Foods brings local, sustainable food options to their clients in a much more simplified manner. With Relay, you get to choose exactly what you want to eat and where it comes from- unlike in a CSA where you have to get a heaping bounty of a particular seasonal veggie or fruit that you may not care for so much. I remember one year when I got about a ton and a half (yes, an exaggeration, I know- but there were soooo many of those things, I couldn’t take it any more) of some weird garlic-scapes that I could only stand cooking in two different ways. I tried them, they were lovely, but I didn’t like them that much!
What is RelayFoods, anyway?
Relay gives options to their clients and in addition to local produce, humanely-raised meats and dairy, they offer a full selection of grocery items, like peanut butter and baking powder, to make life easy and skip a trip to the grocery store. That’s why I share their wonderful program information with my friends, clients and now even my own family!
In conjunction with Relay Foods, I’m so happy to be able to offer a little benefit to my clients and friends. I had them create a special coupon for $25 off any order of at least $50 just for my awesome clients and friends. The coupon code that you can enter at checkout is: ARBOUR
Here is a really cool, short video clip about how Relay Foods helped one local farmer maximize their profits through their food delivery model. Sustainability at work!
