By sponsoring a family, you provide food security for a family in need through the growing season.
Our Sponsored CSA program provides a CSA membership to a household in need for free. Just like the Paid CSA (register here), Sponsored families receive a crate of freshly harvested produce weekly. Eventually, we plan to expand the program to include recipes, cooking classes, and home-grown education for all of our members to get the most out of their share.
what is a CSA?
CSA stands for "Community Supported Agriculture." When you become a member of a CSA, you're purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a regional farmer - creating a direct link between you, your food, and the folks that grew it - and supporting our farm when we need funding most (the spring!) Once harvest starts, CSA members receive their "share" of produce every week.
Our harvest season is usually 20 weeks long, and we aim to sponsor each family for the full duration. Partial sponsors are teamed up to provide a full-season CSA membership for every family. In most cases, we can provide more information on who your donation has directly helped!
Each crate includes enough diverse, seasonal produce to feed a family for 1-2 weeks
- Sponsor a family for 5 weeks: $140
- Sponsor a family for 10 weeks: $265
- Sponsor a family for 20 weeks: $515
how do we find families?
We work with our Community Partners to identify community members with food insecurity. We primarily support low-income, refugee, and elderly households.
