For most of our members, a share typically will last about one week for two people to make 8-10 dishes. Members should expect to continue purchasing meat, dairy, and grains to supplement the share, though different diets will go through the share in different ways - a vegetarian may use up there share more quickly than a carnivore, for example. We send a newsletter for each delivery with share contents, recipes, and ideas for making the most out of your produce. Keep in mind, most of our members cook the majority of their meals - so do take that into consideration.

Members can sign up for a full share or half share membership. Each member will receive the same contents, but a full share member will receive weekly deliveries and half share members will receive biweekly deliveries.

Any more Questions? Here’s our FAQs

Where do you deliver?
We guarantee delivery to the areas in this map. Delivery outside of these areas is dependent on the number of sign up in your area. For example, we have had questions about delivering to the Beverly area - at the time we don’t guarantee delivery there, but if over 10 people were to sign up we could include delivery service to that area.

When will I receive my share?
Members will receive their share between 5pm and 9pm on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Can I receive my share on a different delivery date because I’m on vacation / out of town?
With at least 7 days notice, we can very likely make something else work. Common solutions are: 1) delivering to a friend/neighbor at your residence or within 5 blocks 2) for a half share/biweekly member, shifting delivery 1 week forward or backward (if order logistics allow). Please also know that we only do deliveries on Mondays and Tuesdays, and will not fulfill any requests for Wednesday through Sunday.  

Is payment due before 1st delivery?
Payment is due for your 1st delivery in order to confirm your spot in LUCSA. We will not pack and deliver a share to any member if we do not have payment/advanced communication about specific instances.

What am I getting as a substitute for a listed allergy?
You will receive more of another item in the share or a substitute like item (for example a beverage allergy will get a different beverage, a veggie allergy will get a different vegetable).

Do I have to return the box my share was delivered in?
Yes, we do consider these a reusable item and ask that you always return your wax box. If you are not able to meet your driver, you can place your box where you would like new boxes left, and s/he will grab them when delivering your share.

Can I have my share delivered to someone else for 1 delivery?
If this another LUCSA member receiving a share the same week as you are, yes. OR if this someone is within a few (5) blocks of your home, absolutely, just contact us with as much advance notice as possible. If this someone is beyond 5 blocks from your home – it is not a guarantee as it is dependent on if the person is located somewhere close to where your driver delivers that day.

I am a Pay As You Go Member, can I skip a delivery and not pay for that one delivery?
No. Pay As You Go Members opt into a payment plan for an entire season commitment. Pay As You Go Members are required to pay for their entire season’s commitment - even if they can’t receive a delivery.

I want to sign up but think I might move. Can I sign up for a prorated share?
No. We give priority to members who can commit to the majority of the season, with the understanding that we can also be flexible for certain vacation days for half share members. If you think you might move, we’d suggest offering your share to a friend or family member during the months you think you might be moving.
