Plant Chicago is partnering with The Urban Canopy to distribute Link Produce Boxes to our neighbors on the southwest side. Our office in Back of the Yards will be a pick up site for Link card holders to pick up boxes of produce, bread, and eggs!

How It Works

Requesting a Link Produce Box
Notify Plant Chicago staff that you’d like to request a Link Produce Box for pick up at least one week before you intend to pick up. To reserve your first box, please fill out this form or call our office at 773-847-5523 and we will get back to you shortly with more details.

More about link produce boxes

The retail value of these boxes is $40. Link customers will only have $20 come off their Link card due support from the Chicago Region Food Systems Fund. Limit one box per household per week.

Boxes are a mix of fruits, vegetables, bread, and eggs.

This program will run as long as funding is available. Please see our Support Page if you are interested in donating to help us continue this program.

What comes in each box?


Have a Link card? Please fill out this form or call 773-847-5523 to receive more information about participating in the Link Produce Box program. 

Please note that these Link Produce Boxes are available for Illinois Link card holders only and access to the boxes will be prioritized for residents of Back of the Yards and surrounding southwest side communities. If you do not fit these criteria, and are looking for produce from local sources, check out our farmers market and retail shop!
