Lovely Leafies.

Good Morning! 

With Valentines Day approaching (barf) we want to know what your little heart desires in your Family Dinner shares. We have been thinking about expanding our a la carte offerings and would be thrilled to know what you might be craving week to week. Slices of beautiful bacon? Chuggable Chocolate Milk from Crescent Ridge? Piles of Pierogi? Let us know- we would love to hear from you. Drop us a line: hello@sharefamilydinner.com

Also, if you ever have ideas on how we could improve and serve you better, we want to hear that too - because we think you're the best and we're happy to serve you!

Have a wonderful day!

Erin + Tim

LOVELY LEAFIES

Lettuce shouldn't be scary. It's just greens after all.  But this year the Center for Disease Control put its solemn kibosh on greens coming from the Salinas Valley in California due to reports of E.Coli being linked to greens from this region. This wouldn't sound so frightening if Salinas weren't a major producer of the lettuce we consume throughout the country. 

This part of the state is so fertile that it earned the nickname "The Nation's Salad Bowl" which, when we're talking about an E.Coli outbreak, is just super gross. And hey, I've had E.Coli and I can tell you from experience it's not all that fun. (If you ever have an hour to kill ask me about the time I ate an ill-advised pork sandwich at a train station in Poland. It's a riveting tale.)

To make matters less appetizing, these greens travel over 3,000 miles to get to you plate. Which brings up more than a few questions about freshness, food miles and CO2 emissions. What the heck would Greta Thunberg have to say about that? ( I just LOVE her. Did you know her middle name is Tintin?)

There is, of course, a better solution. Beautiful Local lettuces are being grown year round in New England  by our friends at Clark Farm (Carlisle, MA), LEF Farms (Loudon, NH) and Generation Farm (Concord, NH) and Queen's Greens (Amherst, MA).  We try to get you a variety week to week; spinach, salad mix; baby kale and micro greens to safely and deliciously brighten up your winter plates. 

Harvested within a day of delivery, sent from the farm to Family Dinner and delivered right to your door. We hope you love 'em.
