Low-Income Food Share from Rock Steady Farm

Thanks to everyone that contributes to Ancramdale Neighbors food deliveries.  Even though we both work, without their help, we would not be able to afford enough fresh vegetables to feed our family on our pay.

— A Neighbors Helping Neighbors Low-Income CSA Recipient

During the spring of 2017, thanks to our community’s generous donations, our Watershed’s land and farm partner, Rock Steady Farm & Flowers, was able to provide 16 Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA) shares, in partnership with a local non-profit, Ancramdale’s Neighbors Helping Neighbors Association (NHN). These shares were dropped off, door-to-door, to low-income family homes on a weekly basis. In addition to the NHN shares, Rock Steady also funded for 10 North East Community Center youth boxes. These youth worked on the farm through a paid job training program run by the NECC, and were able to celebrate their hard work with their families by taking home an abundant box of produce each Friday. For 2018, our third year running the low-income CSA, we’re stepping things up a notch and aiming for 30 families, including partial and fully subsidized shares for families in Millerton, the Ancramdale boxes AND our youth boxes. Please help us reach our goal. 100% of your gift will go to supporting this program.

The weekly shares of fresh produce supplied by Rock Steady Farm ensure that each of the families on Neighbor’s food assistance program had equal access to the fresh, wholesome food many of us take for granted. Even with all of the other sources of food from local groceries and The Food Bank, Rock Steady Farm was our largest, most dependable, highest quality and best variety source of produce.
