ONCE a Week Omnivore Menu for the Week of May 21st
This is a big week for us. For the first time since ONCE a Week's inception, we hit 40 shares. That means 40 bags of all local, delicious cooked meals went out to lucky locavores all over Boston. We want to express our deepest gratitude to all those that support us by ordering week after week, spreading the word, and those who are new to the gig and have given us so much love back about the food. We speak not just for us but also for the farmers that our work supports when we say THANK YOU.
