Expanding CSA Access: Please support Just Food in this Campaign!

Dear members and friends,

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is about more than a box of veggies. It’s a way to make the world a better place. For you. For a family farm. For New Yorkers struggling to make ends meet.

Just Food is the nonprofit organization that supported the launch of our CSA and more than 100 others throughout the city. Just Food needs our help. The organization is raising money for Just Share, an initiative that lowers the price of CSA membership by matching payments made with food stamp (SNAP) benefits.

Their goal is to raise $10,000 by May 7th to ensure that 65 families in need can join their neighborhood CSA.
