Fordham University Stops CSA

Rice with greens at Farm to Fordham
The New York Times has a great article about Farm to Fordham, a great CSA that brought fresh food to Fordham students and faculty as well as a local soup kitchen, being shut down because of bureaucracy.  Students and faculty paid $150 per semester to help benefit a local farm and received local seasonal fresh vegetables in return.  Left over veggies were given to the Church of St. Paul the Apostle soup kitchen.  Unfortunately though, Fordham dictated that the CSA would need to get a catering permit for every delivery, but since a CSA is not a caterer the city would not issue the permit.  Right Farm to Fordham is looking for a new location so that they can bring back this great CSA.  Contact them if you can help.  And please donate to the Church of St. Paul the Apostle soup kitchen on 60th and Columbus Avenue.  Also checkout the Farm to Fordham blog for lots f great recipes.
