Help Sort Veggies with our CSA! (age 14+) Referral

Adelante Mujeres http://www.adelantemujeres.org

Love fresh produce? Spend the evening in a room full of fresh local produce when you help us pack shares for our CSA and get produce ready for our distributor!

Adelante Mujeres provides holistic education and empowerment opportunities to low income Latina women and their families in order to ensure full participation and active leadership in the community. Our Sustainable Agriculture program empowers and promotes small-scale sustainable Latino farmers and gardeners while striving for sustainability and social justice. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a program that allows local community members to buy local fruit and vegetables directly from the source.

In most CSA relationships, the produce is distributed to members in weekly "shares," which the community members purchase in advance at the beginning of the growing season. In the Adelante Mujeres CSA, our Distributor buys local produce from many farmers, who are also Sustainable Agriculture program participants, and compiles the produce into shares for the CSA members each week. Purchasing CSA shares in the spring allows the farmers guaranteed sales throughout the season, stabilizing their income in the very hectic world of produce sales. Because we believe that every family should have access to healthy food, we accept SNAP benefits and match dollars for low income families through Double Up Food Bucks.

We'd love your help as a Volunteer Veggie Sorter! You will learn more about our local food system and how Community Supported Agriculture works. There are opportunities to practice Spanish with our staff and participants, and to understand more the issues immigrants and Latinos in our country are facing. You may even discover new produce that you've never tried before! Not only will you be contributing to the success of our local Latino farmers, you'll play a part in a local farm-to-table food system AND have fun! Must be able to lift 20 pounds. Spanish skills helpful, but not necessary.

Schedule: Tuesdays from late June to late October, 5PM - 9PM, with the option to work a two-hour shift

Location: Adelante Mujeres Main Office, Forest Grove, OR

The CSA packing will take place in the area to the left of our main office entrance that we share with Urban Decanter. Look for the archway on Main Street and there you will find us!

Adelante Mujeres provides holistic education and empowerment opportunities to low income Latina women and their families in order to ensure full participation and active leadership in the community.
