Fresh Feast CSA

During 2019, Same Canoe is promoting access to local produce CSAs. We invite you to learn about the Kona-to-Waimea CSA operated by Adaptations. Fresh Feast gathers local farmers' produce together every week and puts together delicious food boxes for pick up at nearby locations. Visit their web site to learn more - with easy web ordering, Fresh Feast is open to everyone.

If you are a SNAP EBT user and enrolled in Same Canoe, we have a few spaces remaining in our pilot program that offers you 3 months of CSA fresh produce in addition to your regular Same Canoe coupon purchasing power. We truly are offering to double your local food access!
