CSA for ALL is back!
We are thrilled to announce that our innovative, sliding-scale, multifarm CSA is back by popular demand for its second season in 2024!
Our first season, in 2023 was a total success, with 117 members, hailing from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds, all eating nutritious, local food sourced from family farmers here in NC. We were proud and humbled that 100% of members surveyed said they would recommend this CSA to a friend. Every single family also reported that participation in this CSA increased their family’s consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Here at Farmer Foodshare, we are honored to partner with 70+ small and mid-scale North Carolina farms and producers – 40 of whom we were able to support directly through this program in 2023. And we are also equally committed to ensuring that local food is accessible to everyone who lives in our regional foodshed – regardless of income level.
That’s why we’re so thrilled to offer Chapel Hill community members another opportunity to buy directly from our Food Hub through our 2024 CSA for ALL! (Psst -We have big plans to expand to Durham later this year!)
What’s this CSA all about? Glad you asked! Members who sign up for this 5 month CSA (May-Sep) will get weekly “shares” of FRESH LOCAL food, sourced from 70+ local, family-scale farmers here in North Carolina. BONUS: Every share you purchase helps fund a share for local families experiencing food insecurity through our partnership with TABLE. Supporting farmers + helping our neighbors = a delicious win-win!
In 2024 we have big plans to increase membership, double the revenue back to farmers, and make the shares even more beautiful, bountiful and delicious than last year! Won’t you join us?
