Our Farm Fresh Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program distributes high-quality, sustainably grown, affordable produce in some of the city’s poorest communities. Our groundbreaking model puts low-income individuals at the centerpiece of the program, subsidizing shares based on income, accepting SNAP as a form of payment, and providing after-work pick-up hours. Members purchase “shares” of a farmer’s crop for the entire growing season (approximately 22 weeks), which increases access to small, regional farmers in urban communities.
"It’s really important to me to get organic, affordable food and talk to the people who grow my food who actually care about the consumer." – Sarah, CSA member and volunteer
