Meals on Wheels Fall Harvest Boxes

Following is the grocery list of items we ask you to place in a copy paper box with lid (or any box sized approximately 17” long, 11” wide, and 10” deep).  Decorate the box as you’d like—the more creative the better (but no glitter, please, or fancy decorations on top—the boxes have to be stacked).
