Tonight: Donate Food for Hurricane Relief
Donate any/all of your CSA share that can be eaten raw AND bring other ready-to-eat foods to pick-up. We are partnering with Sunnyside Cares to coordinate a food drop-off in the Rockaways. Here are some ideas of what to bring: Orange Juice, Apple Juice, granola bars, powdered milk, jelly, jars of baby food, formula (see Sunnyside Cares on Facebook for more info on how to help). NOTE: NO GLASS, NOTHING THAT NEEDS A CAN OPENER.

Also Tonight: Sign up for Winter Shares
Tonight, from 5-8pm, is the ONLY in-person sign up for winter shares. If you plan to sign up in-person, please know the details of the shares you are purchasing and *bring your checkbook.* Remember, the easiest way to sign up is right here via web form and pay with PayPal. You can also sign up via web form then pay by sending a check to our P.O. box.
Note: Payment must be received by November 15th.


Tonight: Donate Food for Hurricane Relief

Hurricane Sandy has devastated many areas of the Tri-State region. Here in NYC, Queens was hit particularly hard. Sunnyside CSA is partnering with Sunnyside Cares—a local group made up of caring Sunnyside businesses and neighbors—to coordinate a food drop-off in the Rockaways. And we’d love your help!

It’s easy, you can chose to donate any and all of your CSA share that can be eaten raw (they can’t take anything that needs to be cooked.) You can also bring other ready-to-eat foods (nothing in glass containers, and any cans must have peel off lids—nothing that requires a can opener) to today’s pick up. We’ll have volunteers there to take your donations and pack them up to get delivered this weekend.

If you want to donate any part of your share, it would be really helpful if you could bring a small box to pack the veggies in. Even more exciting, SCS has agreed that this week’s unclaimed shares can go to Hurricane Relief efforts as well!

Want to do something more? We need volunteers to make this happen.
* Got a car? You can help transport the donation to the local drop-off in Sunnyside tonight at 8pm!
* Got boxes? Bring an extra box or two to pickup!
* Got time? If you’ve got 30 minutes tonight after the pickup (8pm), help us pack up the veggies!

Please contact our volunteer coordinator: volunteers [at] sunnysidecsa.som to donate your time!
