What is a CSA?
A "CSA" or Community Supported Agriculture, is an alternative, locally based economic model of agriculture and food distribution. CSA members or subscribers pay at the beginning of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest, and once harvesting begins, members receive food crates or “shares” weekly throughout the season. Generally these shares consist of produce grown on Ontario farms, but also offering feature items such as eggs, milk, honey, etc.
We are delighted and honoured to partner with the Red Door Family Shelter.
For every 10 full season shares that we sell, we’ll donate 1 full season share to a family that has recently left the shelter in order to assist a family in need.
We love our city, and helping our community in any way possible is a great privilege for us.
Since 1982, the Red Door has provided services for families and individuals who need safe and supportive emergency shelter. In the early 80's there was only one other shelter operating in Toronto. Responding to the growing need for shelter space for homeless families, the Red Door was opened in the basement of the Woodgreen United Church by a group of volunteers. They have now grown to be one of the largest family shelters in the city, providing shelter and support to over 500 families every year.
