This post is intended as a big THANK YOU to our CSA customers who gave a little extra money (and sometimes a lot extra!) on top of their CSA Shares in order to support Crossroads RI.
Crossroads operates their kitchen with a very tight budget that is supplemented with crucial donations. A typical problem for the cooks is not being able to anticipate what is going to be coming through the door on any given week (as far as ingredients are concerned). With your donation we were able to communicate with David, the head chef at CRRI, and allow him time to look over, plan, and shop from our produce lists every week like we would with any other restaurant or grocer. Also, since the product was paid for by CSA members, CRRI received top shelf quality stuff for their clients.
We raised $1,200 and added 10% to each order for a total of $1,320 worth of produce in 2018.
We got a lot of positive feedback from the kitchen and will be excited to try this again next year. For now, let us just say Thank You for your kind support of this important organization and our farm.
