You could go to a grocery store and buy 50 bags of rice to throw in your closet, and it would last you ages. If you have freezer space, you can store certain foods indefinitely. By comparison, fresh fruits or vegetables only last around a week. Once those go bad, you are either forced to replenish or go without.
Right now, many people don’t feel safe going to grocery stores, and it’s become harder and harder to get timely orders through the various popular delivery services.
The single greatest good that we can do to reduce how often you need to go to a grocery store is to provide you with a consistent supply of fresh produce. To do this in a just and equitable way, we allow people to set their own price, so that people can support each other and be supported.
