Detailed information about OKI Vacation Vittles produce bag
Vacation Vittles sells beach vacationers at Oak Island one or more produce bags filled with local food grown and harvested by farmers located in Brunswick, Columbus, and Bladen Counties, North Carolina.
Youth ambassadors at Men and Women United for Youth and Families, CDC will fill the Vacation Vittles Produce Bags and deliver them on Saturday of each week. To pick up your Vacation Vittles bag(s), go to your realty company’s office, either Oak Island Accommodations or Margaret Rudd and Associates in Oak Island.
Each Vacation Vittles Produce Bag will be filled with a variety of produce picked at the peak of freshness by area farmers, then packed and delivered for easy customer pickup the day they arrive in Oak Island. Each bag will contain enough fresh produce to feed a family of four at least three servings of fruit and vegetables for the week (about 12 servings total). At this time we only offer pick-up for Saturday arrivals.
This project is driven by the success of farmers, and creating new revenue streams for local food producers and entrepreneurs. At this time we do not offer refunds, farmers partnered with this project are committed to offering a replacement for any produce bag deemed unsatisfactory. Additionally, to ensure the product is delivered at the peak of freshness any bag(s) not claimed by Sunday at 12pm will be donated to a local food pantry. Partnering with food pantries offers vulnerable citizens access to affordable fresh food.
