This year our low income CSA, the SNAP Box program, recruited 75 households to use their food stamp payments for subsidized weekly produce baskets. Each week SNAP members received information on how to make the most of their share, including recipes, nutrition, preparation and storage tips. Your commitment to our annual appeal will allow us to continue to grow this program with proper educational materials, knowledgeable staff and quality local produce. Consider the impact your giving dollars can have.
