Winter Packaging Update 12/1/21

Every year when it starts to get chilly in the city, we update our procedures a bit to cut back on unnecessary packaging. If you order a box that only contains produce and/or shelf stable items, your box will be packed without ice packs or insulation until temperatures start to rise again. All orders containing refrigerated or frozen items will continue to be packed with temperature controlling materials.

Please keep this in mind if your box is typically dropped off in a lobby or hallway that is heated during the winter. We will always insulate items that must be stored in the refrigerator or freezer, but if your building tends to be warm, you may find you want to unpack items sooner rather than later.  

Sustainability is a huge priority for Farm to People, so we’re grateful for any opportunity to cut down on waste and let nature help us keep things cool! Remember, the insulation that comes in your box is curbside recyclable and the ice packs contain drain-safe, biodegradable gel.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at or via call/text to (347) 455-0387. We appreciate your support!
