CSA NETWORK versus MEMBERSHIP

in

My CSA is part of the Just Food CSA Network. Does that make me a Just Food Member?

Actually, no. Just Food Membership begins with a donation of $40* or more and is for individuals. The CSA Network is for CSA groups and farmers. The benefits of belonging to the CSA Network are for the CSA group as a whole (listing the CSA on Just Food's website, optional liability insurance for the distribution site, technical assistance from Just Food CSA staff, etc.), whereas the benefits for Just Food membership are for individuals (discounts at local businesses and to Just Food events, invitation to Just Food’s Annual Member Meeting, etc.).

We know the CSA Network and individual membership programs are sometimes confusing and we do our best to differentiate. If you have any questions, please contact CSA Program Manager, Qiana Mickie at qiana@justfood.org.

*A reduced rate of $20 is available for low-income individuals and students
