To The Daily Sun,
Entering its fifth year of providing healthy food for families in Laconia, GOT LUNCH! Laconia formed a new partnership this year with four CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farms in the area to provide fresh produce to the children that we serve. The proceeds from our successful "Eat Out For GOT LUNCH! Laconia Week" subsidized our cooperative venture with these CSA farms.
These farms provided us with fresh from the field vegetables every Monday morning which in turn was given to our families along with the usual bags of healthy food. Thank you to the following farms: Beans & Greens Farm of Gilford, Red Manse Farm of Loudon, Still Seeking Farm of Gilmanton, and Winnipesaukee Woods Farm of Alton/Gilford.
GOT LUNCH! Laconia families were so excited about the fresh vegetables. One mom said she got really creative and put kale in her spaghetti sauce and even made kale chips! The families were so grateful to be able to give their children healthy food!
If you wish to help these farms by participating in a CSA sponsorship, please contact these farms directly for fresh, local and sustainably-raised products or to sign up for CSA for you family.
