Winter Share Is Here!

Yes, the first pick up is already here! Distribution will be from 9:30 – 12:30 at our usual site, the Flatbush Reformed Church, in the yard behind the Gray House on Kenmore Terrace and East 21st Street. Please bring your own bags and cartons, as well as any extra you can spare. Thanks!
Please note the dates for the remaining pick ups: Dec.3, Dec. 17, Jan. 7, Jan. 21, Feb. 4.
Separate emails with payment details will be going out to those paying biweekly or with outstanding accounts, so please keep an eye out.
Info on your checks: Veggie share checks received by last Thursday are already at NYCCAH and should have been cashed or will be cashed soon; extra shares checks received by yesterday will most probably be cashed early next week

VERY IMPORTANT INFO ON UPCOMING WINTER SHARE PICK UPS: We will be changing distribution sites after this first pick up. The new pick up site will be in the basement auditorium of the Flatbush-Tompkins Congregational Church on Dorchester and 19th St. Check out the directions here; there will also be directions at the sign-in on Saturday.

Finally, an initial word of inadequate thanks to all those who helped us fund raise to keep the winter share sliding scale viable, either through the ioby link or plain, old regular donations. We’d like to thank you more, but here’s a plain start: THANK YOU! With the matching funds, we raised almost $2,000 dollars all together. This means we have not had to ask for money from other sources to stay alive this time: We’re sustainable for the winter! Many, many thanks to all.
