St. Margaret's Shelter in collaboration with Spokane Tilth, is sponsoring the Share the Harvest event on Tuesday, March 2nd. Participating restaurants will donate a portion of their sales towards scholarships helping limited-income Spokane residents purchase a season's worth of fresh fruits and vegetables from Vinegar Flats Community Garden. This event gives community members the opportunity to support our CSA program and area restaurants, including: Atticus, the Scoop, Neato Burrito and Hills Restaurant. A list of participating restaurants and their locations can be found HERE.
Spokane Tilth's Inland Northwest Community Supported Agriculture Association (INCSAA) will administer the money raised in the form of scholarships to limited-income seniors and households. These scholarships will reduce the cost of weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) produce boxes, providing produce for the duration of the growing season.
In the CSA model, customers purchase a share of the harvest from a producer, which comes in the form of regular installments across the duration of a growing season. On a weekly basis, a collection of food will be available for pick up or delivery. CSA farms supply up to 22 weeks of fresh fruits and vegetables to their members each year. Memberships at CSA farms encourage healthy food choices and support local Spokane farmers and the Spokane economy.
