About 25 participating families, who have children at the pre-K through eighth-grade private Catholic school, pay $240 for eight deliveries of produce over four months.
Each family receives two tote bags, which are filled by parent volunteers, plus a bag of mixed green leaf lettuce mix, says Kathleen O'Sullivan, chair of the school's garden advisory committee.
Peter "Farmer Pete" Trembois, owner of Field of Greens Farms in San Juan Bautista, delivers boxes of fresh produce to the school twice a month.
Proceeds help pay for the school's garden coordinator, Betsy Colby.
St. Raymond is located at 1211 Arbor Road in Menlo Park.
