Many, many people in our community have don't get enough to eat, and they certainly don't get enough fresh, organic produce. For years, as part of our mission, we have been delivering CSA boxes and gleaned produce to area food banks & shelters. We partner w/ Hopelink, Harvest Against Hunger and UW Hillel to get healthy food to our neighbors in need.

This idea originated w/ the Jewish organizations we work with and is based on the Jewish Tzedakah tradition. Tzedakah is the Hebrew word for charity, but its meaning is deeper than simply charity, it also refers to righteousness, justice or fairness, and in the Jewish tradition it is an obligation to give to those in need. Why $18? The number 18 is the number of life and is associated with good luck.
