We work hard to make our Weekly Food Box program as convenient and worry-free as possible. Below you can find many common questions.

Just head here and select one of our box sizes and delivery locations to get started.
We sure do! Members can log into their accounts here, click on the Account Info tab in the top right corner, and select the Referral Tab to get their own personal shareable link! Anyone who signs up for a subscription with your link will get a $10.00 credit AND YOU WILL TOO!

Home Delivery is a great hassle-free way to get your veggies/pantry items each week! $10.00 per home delivery.

You don't have to set anything out before your first delivery. After your first delivery, set your Yellowbird tote/icepacks out before your next delivery and they will be swapped for a fresh order.  If you find yourself needing to cancel you can drop your totes/icepacks off at 4662 Indianola Ave. Columbus OH 43214 Saturday mornings from 10am-1pm, 11749 Kenyon Road Mount Vernon (anytime at the barn), OH 43050, or 301 West Main Cross St. Findlay, OH 45840 (anytime to an employee). Unreturned totes/icepacks have a $30.00 fee each.

Columbus area: deliveries Wednesday evenings from 5-9pm
Mount Vernon/Findlay area: deliveries Friday mid-mornings

We're SO close to having a customizable box! For now, if you REALLY want to choose what's in your box. Check out one of our market style locations!
Please email ybfs.help@gmail.com your food allergies/restrictions and we will add your name to our dietary restrictions list.  When that food item comes up we will try our best to substitute it for an extra veggie or comparable non-perishable.

Some locations keep add-ons in refrigeration so please reach out with any questions to see where your add-ons are located.

When we say sustainable we mean 100% of our veggies, meat, and dairy are non-GMO, grass fed, and free pastured. All of the small family farms we work with follow these practices. It is important to us that every single step of our food system – from the soil, to the animals, to our farmers, and to you – is treated with great value and care.
