Let the Fresh Direct Debates Begin Again!

A while back we got you all going on Fresh Direct with our first Fresh Direct Debate, and it was heated. Many months have passed, and we feel it’s time to re-visit the topic.

As we said before, there is a lot of chatter these days about how and where New Yorkers buy their food: how Whole Foods is taking over the city, how the corner D’Agostino smells bad, and of course, Fresh Direct.

Some say Fresh Direct has helped them cook at home much more. Some say Fresh Direct uses too much packaging and leaves their trucks idling all over the city. Some say logging on for groceries helps them organize their shopping, saves them time and money, and helps them eat healthier meals. Some mourn the further disconnection Fresh Direct has created between consumers and their food.

What do you say about it all?
