The program is run by Corbin Hill, which is designed to provide underserved neighborhoods in northern Manhattan and the Bronx with affordable access to local, seasonal produce. CSAs and farm shares are popular throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, but they're a bit of a rarity in my neighborhood of Sugar Hill, which sits at the very tip top of Harlem, just before Washington Heights.
The majority of folks in the area have limited means, and tend to shop at the local bodegas and or discount markets--which are usually heavy on the canned and packaged foods vs. fresh and unprocessed.
It also allows people to sign up at any point in the season; a wonderful bonus compared to others that have you sign up for the whole thing at once before it starts.
If you follow me on Instagram, you can also see my weekly CSA snapshots (as well as lots of other fun photos!).
