I lived in Utah for the past 5 years and while I was there I was fortunate to learn about a food co-op called Bountiful Baskets. It was a great way for me to provide my family with lots of fresh fruits and veggies at a great price. Not to mention I was able to volunteer which helped out my community and allowed me to meet some great people. Sadly my husband got a job in Kingman, Az and we had to move. I was so sad to learn that Kingman did not have a Bountiful Basket. I have been working very hard to bring it to Kingman and I am happy to say that the time has come. On February 12th I will run Kingman’s first Bountiful Basket. Many of you have heard about this great food co-op so now I would like to walk you through the process of getting your self a basket on Saturday.
The first thing that you need to do is go to www.bountifulbaskets.org Once you are there you need to create an account by clicking on Register for an Account
Now that you have an account you have to wait until the site opens up. The site opens up on Mondays at noon and stays open until Tuesday at 10pm or until the baskets are all taken. When the site opens up you will click on the Participate Now link on the left hand side.
Once there select Arizona and make sure that the date matches the day you are planning on picking up. The picture below does not show the correct date.
Next you will need to select your site from the drop down menu (Kingman – Neal Butler Park). Then choose how many baskets you want up to 3. Click yes on First Time Basket, you will only have to do this your first time even if you pick up at a different location in the future. Then if you want any of the extras that are offered that week type in the number you want. Extras are things like breads, granola, cases of seasonal fruits and veggies, olive oil, hone and many other yummy things. Keep in mind that the extras change from week to week. Once you have everything that you want click the submit button on the bottom.
Once you click submit you are taken to your cart. At this point make sure that everything you want is correct. Once you type in your credit card and click submit your contribution is final and there is no refunds or changes to it. If everything is correct click checkout and then follow the checkout instructions.
Once you are all done you should be able to print a receipt with a confirmation number. You should also receive an immediate confirmation email from bountiful baskets as your receipt. Please bring this with you AND something to take your produce home in (a laundry basket, box, bags, etc.)
