Fresh Fruits and Veggies delivered to your door!

FARMS to COMMUNITIES is a new CSA by Growing Together. We are increasing food access by connecting families around Oakland with one another, and with local farmers, to mutually support one another.

Now, you can order a weekly home delivery of fruits and vegetables (almost all organic, and locally grown) through our Community Support Box or Mutual Aid Box. Read more about us and the story of how this project came about here.

How Your Support Makes a Difference

FACILITATE MUTUAL AID: We understand ourselves as a part of a community in which our wellbeing is intertwined with one another. We are committed to principles of food justice and are inspired by mutual aid community movements.

CREATE JOBS IN OAKLAND: We are hiring local. Our current packing and delivery staff consists of over 35 people who are almost all parents of our OUSD students, and are paid a fair wage of $35/hr.

SUPPORT LOCAL FARMERS: We purchase from local, organic, small scale growers. We are purchasing through select distributors who work directly with farmers. More information on who we source from here.

COVID Safety

We’re following USDA recommended protocols in food handling and packing. We are packing in OUSD’s commercial kitchens and outdoor spaces, distancing, sanitizing often, and wearing masks for food packing and delivery.

Thank you for being part of our community!
