ShareCorps-City Fresh-Food Justice VISTA
City Fresh is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Since 2005, City Fresh has delivered weekly shares of produce to families in Cleveland and throughout northeast Ohio. Our nonprofit program is a direct response to the lack of available fresh and local produce in urban and peri-urban neighborhoods. We work with over 20 farmers within 70 miles to deliver produce weekly to more than 900 shareholders in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties during our 24-week season. We are the only program of our kind working in the food deserts of our region, offering our support to low-income families, accepting SNAP, and working directly with farmers.
