Tinicum CSA is very pleased to offer the opportunity for generous citizens to donate a CSA share to a local family in need. We believe that every person should have access to fresh, healthy produce, and we know that many in our community face a difficult economic reality as they make choices about how to feed themselves and their families. Growing donated shares for local families in need gives Tinicum CSA one small way to give something back to our community — a way to exercise our concern for our neighbors.
We have partnered with The Lord’s Pantry food shelf in Ottsville, PA, to match us with local families who will benefit from receiving one of our shares. When someone chooses to donate a CSA share through us, they send us the cost of the share (or half share) to cover our production costs. The Lord’s Pantry then puts us in contact with a suitable family to receive the share. We welcome that family into the community of our members, and the recipient family comes to the farm to pick up their share just like any other member.
Donors will receive an acknowledgement of their donation from The Lord’s Pantry, and they may use this acknowledgement to deduct their donation from their taxes.
If your family has been blessed with more than it needs, please join us in reaching out to those who struggle to feed their families healthfully and abundantly.
