COVID-19 Local Food Crisis Response

Updates

We are no longer accepting subscriptions for the summer season that ends September 18. 

Friends and valued shareholders,

Thanks to all of you for your patronage and your patience over these past 12  weeks. As you know, this is our first CSA - an effort launched in response to the onset of COVID-19.  We're happy to report that, with your support, we’ve purchased approximately 25,000 pounds of produce and proteins from small farms within 150 miles of Memphis, guaranteeing our local farmers a customer base during very uncertain times. Simultaneously, and, again, with your help, we've also provided CSA shares over that same period to 250 seniors and families left food insecure by the pandemic. That is more than 12,000 pounds of fresh, healthy local food donated across North and South Memphis.  

Even though the summer season is sold out, summer is not over! For those of you participating in the current season, there is more great food coming your way. And, of course we continue to offer delicious seasonal food through our e-commerce site on a weekly basis. 

Additionally, we are in talks with farmers about offering a 6 week Fall CSA, mid- September through the end of October.  We’ll be in touch by the first of September if we are going to open it up for orders.  Stay tuned!

Thank you!! 

The Teams @ 275 Food Project & New South Memphis
