FOCUS AREA: HEALTH
Improving the health of people in Douglas County through equitable access
to quality services and resources that foster complete physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being.
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.
