Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program

The Lenox Hill Neighborhood House Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program began in 2009. CSAs are partnerships between regional farmers and consumers to get fresh produce directly from the farms into NYC communities.

 

 

 

Lenox Hill Neighborhood House is excited to announce that we will partner with GrowNYC again for our 2014 CSA program this year. In the 2014 CSA season, we will offer our clients, and the broader Lenox Hill Community, the freshest, most affordable locally produced fruits, vegetables and other goods through GrowNYC’s innovative Fresh Food Box Program. The Fresh Food Box Program is a food access initiative that allows underserved communities and individuals to purchase fresh, healthy, locally-grown produce in pre-packed boxes containing the best of what’s seasonally available on regional farms.

 

 

The Lenox Hill Neighborhood House CSA's goals are to serve our clients and the Upper East Side community and to support local sustainable agriculture in New York. Our relationship with GrowNYC allows us to provide our very low-income clients with affordable high quality fresh fruits and vegetables at a very discounted price. We also lead initiatives to incorporate these individuals into our CSA model, such as offering nutrition/cooking workshops to teach them how to cook, store and preserve the delicious vegetables in their CSA shares.
