Have you ever wondered how it’s possible to connect more people who typically do not have access to fresh, local, sustainably grown food with this opportunity? Well, our NOFA-NY Neighborhood Farm Share program is now in its 6th year of assisting income qualified individuals/families to do just that. Our program provides a subsidy of up to $100 to purchase a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share from a participating farm/organization. This not only helps connect more people to healthy, sustainably grown fruits and vegetables, but it also provides an opportunity for more people to forge relationships with their local farmers and find out where there food comes from. They also get the opportunity to interact with other CSA members, attend farm events or farmer’s markets, and participate in their community in a more direct, hands-on way than if they just go to the grocery store. And in many "food deserts," there is no local grocery store that sells fresh fruits and vegetables.
