Farm and Faith Partnerships Project: Creation of a CSA

RAFI-USA's New Video Shares the Benefits of Faith and Farm Communities Working Together

Is your congregation interested in building relationships with farmers in your community and purchasing fresh, healthy food? Are you a farmer of color looking for new markets?

RAFI-USA’s Farm and Faith Partnerships Project connects NC faith communities with farmers from RAFI-USA’s Farmers of Color Network to create sustainable food-based partnerships. These partnerships could look like a group of churches that strengthen their collective purchasing power by purchasing multiple CSA shares for their congregants from farmers of color.  Or it could look like a church hosting a farmers market in their parking lot. Through these farm-to-church connections, churches are able to participate in a thriving local food system while also engaging in relational ministries with farmers in their communities.

Watch this video to learn about how partnerships like this could work.
