As part of our mission, we strive to make high-quality fresh produce accessible to as many members of our community as we can. Groundwork Share-a-Share™ donations are used to subsidize the cost of fresh food through subsidized CSA shares, incentive programs for our Farmers Markets, and fresh food donations to food pantries. Through our Groundwork Share-a-Share™ Program, you can make a tax-deductible donation to help us extend the benefits of fresh, locally-grown food to those who would otherwise not be able to afford it.
Your donation for the 2017 season will help a significant number of low-income families who suffer from diet-related health disparities afford fresh produce.
Please consider a tax-deductible donation to our Groundwork Share-a-Share™ program! Donate Here to contribute to this important program.
