Many area residents have been taking advantage of the Delicious Orchards Pre-Pack idea for fresh food supplies during this pandemic.

I know we took advantage of the D.O. Pre-Pack a bunch of times during our stay at home time. You don't even have to get out of the car to get the pre-determined order, pay and complete the transaction. It's a great way to get fresh, healthy food and feel safe doing it.

We did it early on, and continued using the idea throughout the emergency. Now that we are all seeing improvement in the emergency, more people are heading into stores to do their shopping, and D.O. is adjusting their Pre-Pack schedule.

The Pre-Pack schedule will change weekly, so you should check for that week's schedule. Here is a look at this week's schedule...

Today (Tuesday 6/2)...10:00am-3:00pm (or while supplies last)

Thursday (6/4)...10:00am-3:00pm (or while supplies last)

Saturday (6/6)...10:00am-3:00pm (or while supplies last)

Many great local establishments have come up with creative, great ideas during this pandemic to help make getting supplies easier and safer. I want to thank all the great people at Delicious Orchards and all the other local businesses who have been there for us.

We are very lucky in the Monmouth/Ocean area to have so many caring people who step up with courage and great ideas when times get tough. Now is the time to show support to all those local businesses who have been there for us.

When we get completely on the other side of this, we should never forget the people who sacrificed their own safety for our benefit. We know who they are. Thank you to all of them. And thank you to Delicious Orchards for this great idea.
