The Treasure Box

The Treasure Box provides local families and individuals with a great tool to assist in stretching monthly food budgets – a pre-assembled box of popular and nutritious grocery food items worth between $65-100 that can be purchased for only $30.

Each box contains 21-25 pounds of high quality, frozen foods including chicken, pork, beef or seafood, in addition to vegetables, fruit, a side dish and a dessert. A family of four can eat these delicious foods for nearly a week, while a senior citizen can dine on these fares for nearly a month!

Order Deadline: Sunday, November 8, 2009
Pick Up Date: Saturday, November 21, 2009

A recession is a difficult time for everyone and it can be challenging to figure out where to cut costs and stretch finances. A family’s grocery food bill can put them over budget in no time, especially as the cost of food continues to rise. The Treasure Box has developed a solution to the high cost of feeding today’s family.

The Treasure Box provides families and individuals with a substantial box of grocery store quality food retailing between $65-100 for just $30 each. The Treasure Box cultivates relationships with more than 500 major food manufacturers across the country to purchase and provide top quality, nutritious food at sizeable volume discounts to the general public.

Each Treasure Box contains between 21-25 pounds of high quality, frozen foods, including chicken, pork, beef, or seafood, as well as vegetables, fruit, a side dish and a dessert. One Treasure Box is enough food to nutritiously feed a family of four lunch and dinner for almost a week or a senior citizen for nearly a month.
The Treasure Boxes are offered through surrounding host locations – community action or outreach programs and faith-based organizations. Representing a savings of nearly 60% off of grocery store prices, The Treasure Box provides a positive and healthy impact to families and individuals during this economically challenging time.

The Treasure Box is a division of Good Source Solutions, a food distribution company with more than 20 years of service to non-profits, higher education institutions, government feeding programs and specialty markets.

To find out the location closest to you and order your Treasure Box, log in at www.thetreasurebox.org.
