Farm to Fork: United Way CSA Subscription Program

 
 
ABOUT FARM TO FORK
 
Farm to Fork is a CSA Subscription Program developed by the United Way in response to the COVID19 pandemic, which threatened the food security of many Douglas County residents and caused barriers to accessing fresh, healthy food without increased health risk. The purpose of this program is to support local Douglas County farmers while at the same time enabling low-income community members the opportunity to have access to high-quality, locally-grown organic produce to support the health of their family.
 
The United Way CSA Subscription program is a collaboration with Rolling Prairie CSA. Rolling Prairie is the original Midwest vegetable CSA, a cooperative between 8 local farms practicing ecologically sustainable, organic agriculture. 
 
WHAT IS INCLUDED 
Every recipient will receive a 5-month subscription to the Rolling Prairie CSA, starting June 1 and ending Oct. 26, 2020. The subscription includes weekly produce delivery or pick-up, with weekly bags containing 6-8 different varieties of locally grown, organic produce. 
 
WHO IS ELIGIBLE 
Any individual living in Douglas County, KS who is at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level are eligible. Each recipient household is eligible to receive one season CSA subscription. 
 
 
All subscriptions are currently filled and applications are closed. We hope to re-open the program for the fall CSA season, pending funding availability.
