COVID Update from CSA Executive Director Tom Myers

With the shelter-in-place order now extended through May, it’s clear that we are in this for the long haul. So what does that mean for CSA and the community we serve? For starters, food insecurity is going to become an even greater concern, especially with the growing supply chain issues that we are already experiencing. CSA will need to deploy additional staff and financial resources to support this increased need. You don’t need a crystal ball to see that we are heading into an economic downturn, which means more clients and potentially fewer donors.

Harvest of Thanks to Our Community Partners

Autumn brings thoughts of cool crisp days, pumpkin patches, warm apple pie and harvest time.  It also ushers in a season of gratitude and a time of reflection. Thinking about this past year at CSA and our Food & Nutrition Center (FNC),  we want to take this opportunity to thank the many wonderful businesses and organizations we work with throughout the year who help to bring the harvest to our table.  Our program served nearly 700,000 pounds of food to over 3,600 people in our community last year – a feat we could not have done by ourselves as it truly takes a village to care.
