Community Servings brings fresh produce to low-income families


CSAWe're excited to announce a new partnership with Land's Sake and Horizons for Homeless Children to supply our low-income neighbors with healthy eating options. The partnership is a subsidized Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program that allows 10 families associated with Horizons for Homeless Children to participate in weekly cooking demonstrations and to receive fresh fruits and vegetables from the farm at Land's Sake. 

"We're so pleased to be partnering with Land's Sake and Horizons for Homeless Children to offer this innovative subsidized CSA program," said David Waters, CEO of Community Servings. "We are always looking for unique ways to promote food and nutrition as a critical part of health and healing. This program gives Community Servings another opportunity to work with a vulnerable population and educate them on the connection between food and health."

Beginning in late July, Land's Sake has packaged and delivered to Community Servings 10 weekly shares of farm fresh vegetables it has grown and harvested. The town of Weston provided Land's Sake with enough funding to donate the 10 CSA shares to 10 families in need. Each week, 10 families from Horizons for Homeless Children come to Community Servings for a nutrition education and cooking demonstration. Each family has suffered from homelessness in the past but thankfully, has recently been housed.
