But act fast, shares start arriving this week.
Just Share is essentially a subsidy program that supports families using SNAP benefits to buy community-supported agriculture shares.
Last year, Katchkie CSA delivered 130,000 pounds of vegetables to both offices and their community pickup locations.
Just because the weather’s getting colder doesn’t mean you need to say goodbye to your CSA. From December to April, Winter Sun Farms, located in New Paltz, will offer the benefits of fall produce through a winter CSA program.
Meanwhile, Citymeals-on-Wheels, the nonprofit that provides hot weekend meals to the homebound elderly, has teamed up with GrowNYC to deliver fresh fruit and vegetables.
If you haven’t signed up for a CSA yet, you should consider joining one of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger’s sites, which make healthy, organic, fresh vegetables particularly affordable and accessible to community members of all income levels.
For the second year, Local Roots NYC is offering a Pop Up Thanksgiving CSA–basically all the fresh, local goodness of your usual farmshare, but with a special, bigger selection of ingredients curated for Turkey Day.
