Bringing the Farm to Every Fork

artichokesThere’s nothing quite like the thrill of a box of fresh produce arriving at your door, but whether it’s due to a vacation or a long week at work, some of us don’t always get to use the items in our CSA.

Thankfully, Farm Fresh to You recently launched a program that ensures your box doesn’t go to waste, while helping the food-insecure in our communities. The new Donate-A-Box program allows Farm Fresh to You customers to pass along their CSA to a local food bank partner.  Customers are prompted to donate to a food bank when they schedule a vacation hold for their box, or the public can log on to donate a box at any time.

Made possible through a grant from USDA Local Food Promotion, the Donate-A-Box program benefits The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services, SF-Marin Food Bank, Volunteers of America (VOA) Los Angeles, Westside Food Bank (Santa Monica) and Yolo Food Bank (Woodland).
