+BOX is a high growth, early-stage nonprofit having a significant impact on food insecurity in North County. +BOX makes it easier for children and families to consistently access the nutritious foods they need to live healthier lives. The program is designed to minimize barriers to nutritious foods by partnering with local growers, food rescuers, and neighborhood schools to distribute boxes of fresh, healthy, nutrient rich foods on a weekly basis. Every +BOX includes enough nutritious food for families to create up to ten healthy, culturally relevant meals. In 2022, +BOX distributed 23,810 boxes with more than 281,700 pounds of healthy food, enough for about 234,785 meals for families who don't have enough to meet their basic nutritional needs.
