In response to the particular challenges faced by the children and youth in our region, we re-designed our kid’s meal program and launched Meals 4 Kids (M4K) in 2014. It has been a tremendous success! Our M4K program assists children who are eligible for Head Start and/or free and reduced priced lunches at school by providing supplemental healthy foods during the hiatus of school lunch programs. Available during all three major school vacations and over 11-weeks of the summer, this program has three major objectives:
A new Meals4Seniors program which aims to address the unique needs of our region's senior citizens. Our program includes the following components:
What is CSA? CSA, or “Community Supported Agriculture”, is a program through which community members purchase a share of a local farm's harvest. Each CSA member receives a weekly share of the local farm’s harvest of fruits and vegetables (which are often picked just hours before you receive them, and packed full of nutrition!). One share provides a family of four with incredibly fresh, and highly nutritious fruits and vegetables each week. Shares are available weekly during the 18-week growing season, which generally runs from mid-May thru August.
What is SFFP’s CSA Program? 2016 marks SFFP’s 2nd annual CSA program! Through this program, SFFP’s donors sponsor 20 CSA shares for SFFP families. Accordingly, 20 SFFP families are invited to participate in the CSA program. Each family receives one farm share from Wake Robin Farm, and enjoys fresh, locally-grown, delicious fruits and vegetables each week during the 18-week growing season.”
