Food- It Builds A Village

 
“If you really want to make friends go to someone’s and eat with him- the people who give your their food give your heart.” Cesar Chavez

Finding and maintaining a community when you move all the time is hard.

In 2015 a group of researchers from the University of Western Australia surveyed 313 mothers with kids under the age of 5. They found that mothers who had social support networks and who participated in parenting groups had better social and emotional well being than those who went at it alone.

While I didn’t grow up in a military family, I moved nine times and went to seven different schools before graduating from high school. My family has always had success founding community throughout every move by breaking bread. My mom would cook for everyone and anyone who she could talk into coming into our house.
 
 
 
As a grown up I found myself village-less and alone when I became a stay at home mom. I knew no one. Where did I finally find my friends? In a community of mamas who started a buying club. We pooled our demand every week and bought food at wholesale prices. We fed our families together.

I have been astounded at the community we have. And since we started our buying club we have seen it happen again and again in buying clubs across the country. This is why I have made BushelBox. Everything that I have learned from our buying club over the past few years I have taken and made an app that will run a buying club for you. We do all the hard work for you and all you have to do is reach out and invite friends. You will all get to order awesome food products at deep discounts. Then we will ship the whole bulk order to one house which is where the community piece comes in. The order has to get distributed! Make a party out of it, open a bottle of wine to share, schedule a playdate, plan a potluck.

Nothing is a more perfect way to reach out and meet your neighbors than by offering them all the access, curation, savings and community. Access to some of the best food out there AND it will help you build your village.
