“CSA” Stands for Community Supported Agriculture. In a CSA, you prepay for food to help farmers plan for how much to grow, helping to minimize food waste and share the costs of seeds and materials up front.
In our Salad Days CSA, you sign up for the program and prepay for four weeks of salads and high energy snacks. For us, this means we can eliminate food waste because we know exactly how many families we are feeding during the program. Additionally, we plan orders with our farmers so they can plan their harvest more efficiently and sell more of their product. Did you know that up to 40% of food in America is wasted? Maybe we need to shift the conversation from growing MORE food to wasting LESS food.
