  • Fresh, local produce will be available to members of the community through the Food Bank of Delaware's Community Supported Agriculture program this season.
    The program will provide participants with the opportunity to purchase shares of locally-sourced produce. Shareholders can expect to see eight to 10 different varieties of produce each week. Families who are income eligible receive shares at a deep discount. Full shares cost $10 each week, while half shares are five dollars each week. Community members who are not income eligible may purchase full or half-shares for $500 and $250.
    Improvements have been made to the program, including a better variety of foods, shares packed in containers to maintain freshness, discounts at local restaurants, discounted rates for college students and food demonstrations every week at the Wilmington Farmers Market at Cool Springs Park.
    Produce shares will be available for weekly pick up (18 weeks total) at the following locations:
    Donor shares: Wilmington Farmers’ Market at Cool Springs Park, the Food Bank of Delaware’s Newark facility (14 Garfield Way), Downtown Dover Farmers’ Market and Food Bank of Delaware’s Milford facility (1040 Mattlind Way) starting in June.
    Income-eligible shares: Wilmington Farmers’ Market at Cool Springs Park and Downtown Dover Farmers’ Market
