Conventional Basket - In the conventional basket we focus our buying as follows: High Quality, Low Cost and As Local as Possible…
I want to share that for my family, I use the basket as a guide to make sure we are getting as much produce in our diets as we should. We started with one a week, and now we are getting a basket and a pack a week! I have noticed that with all the healthy food being eaten there’s no room for unhealthy snacks!
This basket is our best valued item, as volunteers assemble it on-site. Remember, any participant can come volunteer and Bountiful Baskets wouldn’t happen without volunteers, so please take the time periodically to volunteer. Also, I have noticed that I am better about getting all the produce eaten from the week before when I am looking forward to volunteering and visiting with the friends I have made at my site. The social connections and fun on-site help keep me motivated to use up my produce so I can go back for more!

Bountiful Baskets Bread Items
With no artificial preservatives, critters want to eat this bread as much as we do! Refrigerate or freeze promptly. Bountiful Baskets breads freeze beautifully! If you’re going to use them within a month, you can simply pop the loves into the freezer. Leave the outer packaging as well for an additional layer of protection. If you want to store them longer term, wrap snuggly with a plastic grocery sack or plastic wrap. When ready to use, thaw on the counter, but remember to open the bag for the first few hours and turn it over frequently to allow any moisture to escape and keep the bread from getting soggy. You can also use frozen bread directly from the freezer for sandwiches and they’ll be thawed by lunch time.
