An idea that's taken off in the UK is the 'Fresh Box', which means for a set price, customers get a box with the best, freshest local produce each week, picked, packed and delivered by local producers. the contents may vary, but the aim is to provide a healthy selection of local vegetables without the transport and middleman costs. Buyers can indicate how many people the box is to provide for, cutting out the typical supermarket 'designed waste' of forcing customers to purchase pre-packed produce in quantities which don't suit their consumption rates. This cuts the amount of food going straight to compost or the dump!
