During COVID, The Katsiroubas and Shirazi families were faced with the dilemma of how to help farmers and producers get their goods to market, keep their teams employed, and feed many families in need. Katsiroubas Brothers Produce began procuring CSA-style produce boxes to sell directly to the public and donate to charitable organizations and when the government announced its Farmers to Families program, moved quickly to participate. Ted (Katsiroubas) and Josh (Shirazi) began working together to procure the products needed to complete the food boxes and forged partnerships with nonprofits such as the Chelsea Collaborative and Fresh Truck but they wanted a way to get the broader community involved.
