BENEFITING: JUST FOOD INC
Would you be willing to donate the amount of your weekly ($25), monthly ($100), or seasonal ($550) vegetable budget in order to help a family in need get access to fresh, healthy, locally-grown food?
Since 1995, Just Food has worked with communities to make CSA* affordable for all New Yorkers, regardless of income. By providing a dollar-for-dollar match to SNAP (food stamp) benefits, Just Food helps families double their budget for fresh food.
Last year, we were able to assist 12 CSAs in making CSA affordable for 76 low-income families. Please help us raise $10,000 by February 28 so that we can help 100 families in 2014 eat local, healthy food.
*CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) groups buy shares in a farmer’s growing season and in return receive weekly neighborhood deliveries of fresh produce. Find out more at justfood.org.
Just Food is a non-profit organization that empowers and supports community-led projects that increase access to locally grown food, especially in underserved NYC neighborhoods.
