When Nigel was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, it was very clear just how important fresh, nutritious food was for his recovery. We created the Care Share Program and committed to giving away 10 CSA boxes each week to folks who were also battling cancer. Needing recipients for these shares, we asked our members if they could recommend people, but before we knew it they were donating to the fund to help us expand.
Thanks to the support of our generous CSA members and friends, we now offer Care Shares to people with any type of illness or compromised health condition. Each week we send shares to our Care Share CSA members, The Family House at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, the senior luncheon program at Potrero Hill Neighborhood House and several kid’s cooking programs.
After a long, hard fought battle, we lost Nigel July 1st, 2017. This program honor’s his memory, and we can’t think of a better way to do so. If you would like to nominate a Care Share member, or learn more about this program please contact us at (707) 999-1150 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
