Protecting Local Food Systems


For 15 years, City Fresh’s mission has been to improve the resilience of our community in the face of crisis.

The swift spread of COVID-19 has us all on edge. Our reliance on global systems of rapid delivery is and will continue to be tested. Cooking at home, eating well, and getting plenty of rest is going to be more important this year than ever. We sincerely hope you are well and taking good care of yourselves.

On our end, we are exploring ways to alter our distribution model to ensure your health and safety as well as that of our volunteers, hosts, farmers, and staff. Details will be forthcoming as we approach June, but at this time, we’re sprouting seeds in the high tunnels, pruning the orchards, and planning for a busy summer ensuring everyone is able to eat local and enjoy the bounty of fresh, healthy, delicious foods.

Remember that participating in City Fresh is an excellent way to:

  • ensure that you are eating your allotment of fresh veggies
  • bolster access to fresh local food for all thanks to tiered pricing and participation in SNAP
  • support small farmers in sustainable agriculture

We hope to see you this season.
