In 2022 we were able to offer a subsidized share to a family who had recently arrived from Ukraine thanks to the generosity of our members. This was such a lovely experience for all of us that I’ve decided to create a Community Food Fund.
As we all know, fresh and healthy vegetables are not always accessible to everyone, and just as inflation is driving up all of our expenses on the farm, I fear this problem is only being exacerbated. In an effort to address this at least in our very small circle of influence, we will be earmarking two percent of each share sale to the fund. In addition anyone can contribute to this fund when buying a share or at any time through the web store, helping us to increase the accessibility of our vegetables to the community.
If you are interested in accessing this fund, or know someone who might benefit, please send me a message.
