SUPPORT LOCAL FARMS WITH YOUR FORK: Organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) at Congregation Kol Ami

Project Description

In our 15th year, Congregation Kol Ami is proud to offer a Jewish Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. We were the first in our region to align with Hazon, a national nonprofit that links Jewish tradition with environmental action. Through its CSA network, Hazon uses Jewish purchasing power to support local organic farmers, foster vibrant Jewish communities who care about environmental and educational issues, and examine food and environmental issues from a Jewish perspective. The Hazon CSA at Kol Ami partners with over 100 Amish and Mennonite organic farmers from Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative (LFFC). The diversity of crops among LFFC farmers ensures a good variety of fresh-picked seasonal produce each week. Enrollment keeps local sustainable farms and local food safe for future generations. Our CSA is comprised of members from the local community. We safely distribute fresh, locally grown, organic vegetables, fruit, eggs, cheese and herbal medicines each week on Tuesday evenings from the Congregation Kol Ami kitchen. The CSA at Kol Ami operates from late April through October for the Summer season, followed by a Fall season that ends in December. We are working on an alternative space in Elkins Park to distribute the CSA when we officially need to move due to the sale of our property.
