The Foxes Boxes is located on the northside of Wilmington in an area designated as an urban food desert. Urban food deserts can be described as geographic areas where residents’ access to affordable, healthy food options (especially fresh fruits and vegetables) is restricted or nonexistent due to the absence of grocery stores within convenient travelling distance. The closest full-service grocery store to The Foxes Boxes is almost 3 miles away.
The Foxes Boxes menu was created to fit the needs of a mixed income neighborhood and provide fresh food at price points that are affordable. Whenever possible ingredients will come fresh from local farms and urban gardens, otherwise the priority is “fresh food”.
