Food Security and Food Dignity

Food powers our bodies, minds, families, economies and communities. Dignified access to healthy food is a human right.

Food is power. Knowledge is power. If we are educated about sources of our food and processes of growing, harvesting, preapring, storing and transporting, we are able to take control of the systems that make healthy food affordable and easy to access.

Affordable CSA Shares

ICH collaborator Healthy Food For All provides subsidized Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares of farm-fresh produce for families with limited income. Income eligible households pay half the regular price in monthly installments (Food Stamps accepted!) and receive an abundant variety and quantity of organic produce every week. Subsidized CSA shares are now available year-round from over ten local farms with pick-up options in Ithaca, Trumansburg, Dryden / Freeville, Groton and Lansing, but spaces are limited so don’t delay!
