Allen Neighborhood Center Veggie Box

Allen Neighborhood Center Veggie Box

    Community supported agriculture (CSA) consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. The CSA model helps to keep sustainable farming a viable way of life for small-scale family farms that are increasingly threatened by large-scale agribusiness. ANC's model is a multi-farm CSA that unites several growers to feed a common community - all of you! It provides the advantages of a traditional CSA, but also highlights crop diversity, minimized risks and burden, and a more cooperative feel. The Veggie Box program provides a convenient way of obtaining fresh, high quality, locally grown and produced foods. Our goal is to ease the amount of effort involved with healthy conscious eating by bringing the farmer’s bounty to you. Each week, we purchase the best in-season produce from an array of local farmers, pack it into a box, and deliver directly to your workplace, or have it available for pick-up at the Allen Market Place. We source our products from local growers and producers in the Lansing area who utilize sustainable growing practices and stringent food safety measures. Therefore, we can ensure a safe and healthy product for you and your family that is also good for the environment! Each box includes a newsletter with healthy recipes utilizing that week’s produce, a bio of the farmers providing the various items, and preparation tips for featured vegetables.
