Partner Programs Reimagined: Urban Farms

5.6.2020

Once a partner always a partner! We are proud to be connected to organizations who are at the forefront of ensuring healthy food access during this critical time. Their sacrifice, ingenuity, and commitment inspire us!

We are honored to support the work of urban farms and help connect like-minded partners by sharing their innovative ideas and how some have reimagined their programs. 

Drive Up Markets

In addition to call-ahead ordering, markets are offering drive up or contactless curbside options to continue to serve their communities.

Shifting Revenue Sources

Many farms have lost revenue from local partnerships and sales at farmer’s markets, however, this has opened up the opportunity for an increase in Community Supported Agriculture sales with future plans to expand CSA programs in the fall.
