PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. -- East Coast Farms and Vegetables near Lake Worth Beach is taking a creative approach to keep business moving forward during times of uncertainty.

In an effort to encourage social distancing, the staff is loading the boxes directly into their customer's vehicles.

  • 2 yellow pepper
  • 2 yellow onions
  • 1 yellow squash
