City Fresh is a uniquely accessible Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program that seeks to address the limited access to fresh, local produce in our cities in Northeast Ohio while providing more stable markets for local farmers. Our primary focus is to get as much healthy produce onto the kitchen tables of the most possible people regardless of income.
City Fresh remain the only CSA working in the food desert that offers tiered pricing and accepts Food Stamps/Ohio Direction. We're also unique in that we give our shareholders (customers) the option of week-to-week ordering. City Fresh pays $0.81 of every shareholder dollar directly to our farmers, compared to the $0.05 - $0.15 paycheck (estimated by the USDA) they receive from our grocery store purchases. In total, City Fresh generates more than $150,000 of income for local farmers each year.
