New drop-off locations for Neighborhood Foods CSA

Posted by on March 05, 2013

Neighborhood Foods, a West-Philly urban farm, is introducing new drop-off locations all around the city, for its CSA . (CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Customers pay the farmer at the beginning of the season and receive a box of local produce every week). NF cooperates with other urban producers to pool resources and promote each other’s products, including Green Aisle jam, Philadelphia grown honey, Four Worlds bread, and Green-street/La Colombe coffee. All of which are available through the CSA. The Neighborhood Foods CSA runs from May 24th through October 25th.

Neighborhood Foods unifies communities through urban farming and civic action. They use farms to stabilize vacant lots and generate a financially sustainable business. In partnership with Urban Tree Connection a 501(c)(3) non-profit, they run educational programs for people of all ages, bring neighbors together through events, and make fresh local produce accessible in low-income neighborhoods. All of the income from their CSA goes to support these programs.

NF has chosen to confront urban health issues head on, because living a positive life starts with living a healthy life. Living healthy includes mental health, personal safety, and happiness.
