Working Hands Farm is committed to making a difference in our community. We believe that it is not enough to provide the highest quality produce to those who can afford it, but also to those who cannot. As a young man growing up in Portland, my mother supported 3 children on a meager income and I know first-hand the hardships struggling families face. I also know the diet of low-income families; tv dinners, white bread sandwiches, frozen burritos, etc… anything quick, easy, and full of calories. If it weren’t for a few dedicated individuals who stepped in to provide my family with fresh produce, I am sure that I would be facing many of the same debilitating health challenges that plague our nation today.
This season we will start a pilot project that will provide a few local families in need with a CSA box of their own. We will provide them with fresh fruits and vegetables and easy-to-prepare recipes that maximize nutritional intake and use little of the precious time moms like Brian’s have in a day. We encourage our members to give a little extra when they sign up. 100% of all donations will go towards feeding a family in need. And even if you are not a member of our CSA program, we encourage you to donate and help us provide fresh food to a struggling Portland family. If you would like to make a donation by cash or check please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will give you the details.
