Our unique 3-part Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program provides high-quality Certified Organic vegetable shares to approximately 1000 people across the region. This partnership between our surrounding community and the organizations that help to distribute our food serves to support our mission and provides the sense of responsibility that makes the Grower's work in the fields so meaningful.
In 2017 we grew $146,901 worth of food. 43% of that food was distributed to low-income households.
In our traditional CSA, households in our immediate surroundings "buy in" to the CSA early each year to receive vegetables, flowers and herbs each week of the growing season. This is a great way to to get to know us, support our mission and put healthier food on your table. Learn more.
Farm to Group Home (F2GH)
Red Wiggler partners with multiple group home agencies to deliver "staple shares" to group homes. A "staple share" is made of more quantity and less variety, centering around items that the public is more comfortable using, like carrots, collards, potatoes and tomatoes. These deliveries are accompanied by a newsletter with healthy recipes and an identification guide for the contents of that week's "share" to make preparation more accessible for residents and their support staff.
Farm to Food Bank (F2FB)
Through partnerships with Manna Food Center, Community Food Rescue and DC Central Kitchen, Red Wiggler delivers vegetables throughout the season to individuals in need in Montgomery County and Washington, DC. These take the form of individual bags packed for families at a local school, through Manna's Smart Sacks Program, as well we bulk deliveries to food banks, Meals on Wheels, and other food service programs. These organizations work hard to get highly nutritious vegetables on the tables of families in need in our region.
