PFP is currently fundraising for donations to our Food Share programs, specifically our Sponsored CSA Share program. It is core to our mission to offer affordable access to nutritious, locally sourced produce to as many people in our community as possible.
The Sponsored CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program enables households to pick-up weekly shares of produce through our market-style CSA distributions. These distributions allow members to select a variety of produce that is well-liked and culturally relevant to their household. Sponsored CSA Share members also participate in “Pick Your Own” which allows members to harvest specific crops throughout the season.
Each family determines the amount they are able to pay, with most members contributing around $5 per week, and no sponsored share member is turned away if they are not able to pay anything. We currently have a waiting list, and would like to accept everyone!
This program is more critical than ever as food prices and housing prices increase in staggering amounts.In 2022, food prices increased by 9.9 percent overall, with food-at-home prices increasing by 11.4 percent. In 2023, the price of food-at-home is expected to increase an additional 6.3 percent.
If you have the means, please consider "Donating" a share for another family in need. Your contribution is tax-deductible and will be acknowledged with a donation acknowledgement letter. You can select the share size below.
Thank you so much for considering contributing to this special and life changing program!
