Ordering fresh food has never been easier.

Farmigo, an online farmers market and certified Benefit Company which delivers fresh, seasonal produce sourced from local farms once a week, is partnering with Martin Luther School (MLS) to bring the best food to heart of Maspeth.

MLS has decided to join Farmigo because they will make weekly deliveries of fresh produce, meats, dairy, cheese, eggs and artisanal goods directly to the school, making it easier than ever to insure the students are eating healthy.

The best part is that parents can place online orders for food through Farmigo and pick it up right at the school, which is located at 60-02 Maspeth Ave.

All of the food is harvested to order, and buying from small farms supports sustainable practices and the local economy. As an added benefit, with enough orders, 10 percent of the sales will be donated to MLS to fund initiatives at the school.

Parents have every week until Sunday night at midnight, to place their order. The next day, the farmers and producers harvest and pack the order to be delivered every Wednesday. Orders can be made from week-to-week, skip a week or parents can even place weekly standing orders. There are no commitments, order minimums, or delivery fees to use Farmigo.

The first delivery to MLS will be Wednesday, April 13, and orders can picked up at the school from 2:30 -4:30 p.m.

Place your first order before midnight, Sunday, April 10, to try it out. Use coupon code LOCAL20 at checkout to get 20 percent off your first order.

Farmigo is currently only offering this service to parents and employees of MLS.
