Join the 2016 Farm to Family CSA Program
To kick off the growing season, Bowdoin Street Health Center and BIDMC are excited to once again partner with Ward’s Berry Farm, to offer a Farm to Family CSA program to employees and members of the BIDMC and MASCO communities.
Now entering its 6th year, the Farm to Family Program provides opportunities for staff to receive delicious, fresh produce, conveniently delivered to several campus locations, every week for 16 weeks. Additionally, staff can elect to sponsor subsidized farm boxes, making it possible for low-income families in Dorchester to gain access to high-quality healthy foods. Local farmers, like Ward’s, also benefit from this type of early investment in produce, as funding helps to support their startup costs for the season. See the options below to find out how you can be involved in this wonderful opportunity!
Farm Box Options
- Farm Box plus Sponsorship: At $450, your cost includes 16 weeks of fresh produce valued at $22.50 plus a donation of $90 to support the purchase of a farm box by low income families in Dorchester.
- Farm Box Only: At $360, your cost covers 16 weeks of fresh produce valued at $22.50 per box
Sponsorships are a core component of the Farm to Family Program, and are vital to its ongoing success. Gifts such as those listed below will support the purchase of a subsidized farm box for local families.
Your generous donation of:
- $30 will provide a subsidized farm box for 2 weeks
- $60 will provide a subsidized farm box for 1 month
- $90 will provide a subsidized farm box for 6 weeks
- $120 will provide a subsidized farm box for 2 months (half season)
