As the Massaro Farm CSA concludes its 7th week of providing fresh vegetables to its 125 subscribers, it’s my pleasure to report that the Massaro Community Farm has also donated nearly 2,000 pounds of food to social service organizations.
That’s ton of food, literally, given to those in need.
You may be wondering where the donations are going. We have chosen three organizations representing our community:
- Woodbridge Human Services – It may be surprising to learn there are families in Woodbridge that are food insecure. With the help of the Massaro Farm, some of these families are recieving fresh produce each week.
- Columbus House, New Haven – Last year Columbus House served more than 100,000 meals to over 4,000 individuals. The Massaro Farm is proud to provide wholesome food for their meals.
- Birmingham Group Health Services, Seymour – Each week individuals now receive fresh vegetables grown at Massaro Farm during their Social Club lunches.
How this fits with our mission:
Part of the mission of the Massaro Community Farm is to donate produce to charitable organizations in the community. We get the vegetables directly from the Massaro Farm CSA. The CSA pays a percentage of what it produces as a form of rent to the Massaro Community Farm, in accordance with terms of a sub-lease agreement. This arrangement allows the Massaro Community farm to carry out its charitable mission to feed those who need it most.
Thanks to the CSA and specifically farmer Steve Munno, the crops are growing well, making this all possible.
