If you are going on vacation or traveling for work and you would like to switch your pickup day, please observe the following policies (updated for 2018):
- You must email Farm Manager Melanie Hardy at firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday evening of the week you wish to switch your pick up day. The farmers harvest Tuesday’s share beginning on Monday morning. The advance notice ensures they harvest the correct quantity of vegetables for each distribution, so nothing goes to waste or runs out.
- You may not carry over your pickup to the next week. Tuesday sharers must pick up their share on Friday of the same week. Friday sharers must pick up on Tuesday of the same week.
- Although we do our best to accommodate emergencies, if you are unable to give at least 24 hours notice that you would like to switch, we prefer that you ask someone to pick up your share for you. If you are unable to send someone else to collect your share, the farmers will try to work with you to find a reasonable solution. However, once your share has been harvested, we cannot store it until the next pickup day.
- Sharers may request no more than three switches per summer season. If you are going to be gone for an entire week or more, please ask someone you know to pick up your share when you are not available. Otherwise, we will give it to one of the food rescue organizations we donate our extra produce to.
Thank you for helping us keep pickups running smoothly!
