In 2008, the Regional Food Bank initiated a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program to generate revenue and underwrite farm expenses.

A CSA program creates a relationship between a farm and a community of supporters. Members contribute to the farm’s yearly operating budget by purchasing a share of fresh produce. In addition to receiving locally grown, fresh, high quality vegetables each week during the harvest season, you will have the opportunity to participate in “Pick Your Own” at our Farm. During the season, our CSA member may visit the Farm on designated Saturdays and pick vegetables including cherry tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, and herbs! All members are invited to visit the farm to learn about agriculture or to roll up their sleeves and help with the day’s work! As you partner with the Farm, your membership supports the growth and distribution of farm fresh produce to the hungry through member agencies of the Food Bank.

2021 CSA Season: June 24 – October 7

Personal Thoughts
Like many Minnesotans, I grew up with the privilege of “going to the Lake” in the summer. (Much to the chagrin of my spouse, who hails from the West, we Midwesterners never really bother to specify which lake. It’s just the Lake.) Not unlike many families in this area, I am fortunate in that early ancestors from Norway had the foresight to purchase lake front land where they wasted no time establishing family traditions – including an annual July 4th celebration. And while land is simply land, it’s our “landscape” that helps describe the essence of who we are. For me that landscape, and more precisely “the Lake,” is really all about family.

I recall my wedding day as guests came out of the chapel to greet us in the receiving line. My new mother-in-law from out of state stood next to me as I introduced her to many unfamiliar faces. She remarked later that every other person was “a cousin from the Lake.” How right she was. In our family, it doesn’t matter if one is a first cousin, a third cousin twice-removed, or the spouse of a second cousin – we are just cousins. Cousins range from several months old to those in their nineties, and, oddly enough, we consider ourselves part of an “immediate” family, even though the number of us easily exceeds a couple hundred. We all grew up spending summers at the Lake, and we were always accountable to the aunts in the generation (or two) ahead of us. We are there for one another’s weddings, funerals and sometimes birthdays. We look forward to sharing kransekake and rommegrot. We are intent on ensuring that our children know our cousins’ children. So, to know me is to know that I am a wife and a mother, a daughter and a sister, a grand-daughter, and, importantly, “a cousin.”

All of us at CCM look forward to learning your story, because that is how we at CCM have defined ourselves as a company, and that is how we will continue to define ourselves in the future. We must know you and your story before we can help you accomplish what is important to you.

Fresh Ground Pork Donated by Oklahoma 4-H and FFA Members Arriving at Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma

Wed, 13 Apr 2011 6:06:48 CDT

Fresh Ground Pork Donated by Oklahoma 4-H and FFA Members Arriving at Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma The Food Drive that was promoted by the Diamond Hats group at the 2011 Oklahoma Youth Expo became more than just canned beans and corn- as the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma received this week several hundred packages of fresh ground pork produced by some of the exhibitors of the Youth Expo. A total of nine young people from three Oklahoma communities donated their show animals to be processed into pound and a half ground pork packages as a part of the Food Drive that donated over 700 pounds of dry goods as well. When all of the meat that was being processed arrives at the Regional Food Bank- they will have received 1,500 pounds of fresh pork from these 4-H and FFA youth.


The idea originated with a generous young lady from Seiling. For the past couple of years, Chelsie Livingston of the Seiling FFA Chapter has donated her show pig to the local food pantry if it did not qualify for any premium sales. When the Seiling Chapter Advisor Ben Fischer heard that the Diamond Hats had organized a food drive in cooperation with the office of Governor Mary Fallin for those coming to the Oklahoma Youth Expo, their chapter decided they would try to find corporate sponsors to pay for the processing and donate six pigs from the Seiling FFA to the Food Drive.


Once Chelsie arrived at this year's Youth Expo- word got around about the Seiling FFA gift- we talked with Chelsie about her efforts- click here to read that story and listen to our conversation with her back in March. and two additional chapters had young people stepping up to donate their pigs as well.


Processing money was found as four organizations stepped up to help. The Board of Directors of the American Farmers and Ranchers dug into their own pockets and paid for the processing of six animals, while the Bank of Western Oklahoma, Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Pork Council each paid for the processing of one animal each.


Diamond Hat leaders promise that this effort will be expanded in 2012, as they look for ways to encourage the ag youth of Oklahoma to be able to help feed Oklahoma families by helping the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.


The young people involved in the pork gift to the Food Bank included the following:

Gillibrand Introduces Legislation To Create Direct Supply Chain Between Farms And Food Banks

Coronavirus Pandemic Has Caused A Two-Fold Problem In the Food Supply Chain: Regional food bank farm Face A Regional food bank farm of Crops As Restaurants, Hotels, and Schools Remain Shuttered; Meanwhile Food Banks Are Experiencing Unprecedented Demand, With Millions of Newly Unemployed Americans; The Food Bank Access to Farm Fresh Produce Act Will Connect Food Banks’ Demand With Farmers’ Supply

Today, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, introduced legislation to address disruptions in the regional food bank farm supply chain caused by the coronavirus pandemic and directly connect farms to food banks. As restaurants, hotels, schools, and other food service entities cease operations to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, eastern redbud north carolina have emerged that millions of pounds of produce have been left to rot. Regional food bank farm, food banks across the country are facing unprecedented demand, as millions of newly unemployed Americans now face food insecurity. The Food Bank Access to Farm Fresh Produce Act would provide needed support to food banks as they continue to serve the surge of jobless Americans, while also supporting struggling farmers who lack buyers for their produce.

“Like many Americans dealing with the economic fallout from the COVID-19 outbreak, farmers in New York and across the country are struggling to make ends meet,” said Senator Gillibrand. “The Food Bank Access to Farm Fresh Produce Act will not only provide them with a new chain of potential buyers, but it will put money directly in their pockets by cutting out middlemen and will deliver fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables to millions of Americans facing food insecurity. This important bill will stimulate the farm economy and strengthen the health of Americans. I’m proud to introduce this legislation and will fight for its inclusion in the next relief package.” 

More than 30 million Americans are currently jobless due to the coronavirus pandemic and many are struggling to put food on the table. According to Feeding America, a leading hunger relief organization, demand at food banks has surged by 70%. Today, with food banks facing mile-long lines, the need for resources to feed hungry Americans is greater than ever. The Food Bank Access to Farm Fresh Produce Act would meet this demand by giving food banks the power to purchase excess specialty crops — including fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, and dried fruits, which are easily stored and processed by food banks — directly from farmers. 

Senator Gillibrand’s proposed Food Bank Access to Farm Fresh Produce Act would provide $8 billion in block grants to food banks in the top vegetable and fruit producing states. Food banks will be able to use the funds to purchase fresh produce directly from farmers in New York, which is the 15th largest vegetable and fruit producing state, and other states. They will also be able to use the funding to pay for distribution, processing, and additional staff needed to meet increased demand.  

As a member of the Senate City bank lubbock texas phone number Committee, Senator Gillibrand has prioritized support for farmers throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Last month, Senator Gillibrand announced the Relief for America’s Small Farmers Act, which would regional food bank farm economic relief for small farmers suffering from massive financial losses due to reduced demand and supply firstbanks com disruptions. In addition, she has repeatedly urged the administration to support dairy producers and provide assistance under the CARES Act for local food producers who have experienced losses due to the coronavirus outbreak. 

The Food Bank Access to Farm Fresh Produce Act has been endorsed by leading food access advocacy organizations:  

"The hunger crisis has been exacerbated by COVID-19, and while the fight is urgent, it is a marathon, not a sprint. Nothing short of a full-scale, long-term federal response will be sufficient to meet this challenge on behalf of New Yorkers and Americans who will face the consequences of this pandemic for a long time to come. We are grateful to Senator Gillibrand for her leadership and partnership in this fight and for working hard to ensure that emergency food providers in every corner of the country have the resources to help Americans put food on the table." - Leslie Gordon, President and CEO of Food Bank For New York City

“We’re grateful to Senator Gillibrand for her tireless advocacy to ensure that our friends and neighbors in need have food on the table. During these unprecedented times and the drastically increased requests for fresh, nutritious food of the emergency food network, this legislation would make a significant impact on Food Bank of Central New York’s ability to meet that need. Our service area of Central and Northern New York has a rich and diverse agricultural history and we welcome the additional funding to increase our ability to support local farmers and food producers while feeding those in need.“ Karen Belcher, Interim Executive Director, Food Bank of Central New York

"The value of this grant program right now would be immeasurable, and we are deeply grateful to Senator Gillibrand for her efforts. Sourcing from regional farmers to provide fresh, healthy food regional food bank farm some of New York City's most hard-hit communities supports not only vulnerable New Yorkers during the current pandemic, but also a healthy regional food system, the significance of which is demonstrated by recent disruptions in the industrial food supply chain." - GrowNYC President and CEO Marcel Van Ooyen

“As our nation faces unprecedented unemployment coupled by a precipitous rise in food insecurity and the vanishing of direct marketing opportunities that sustain so many family farms, it is critical that we prioritize our resources to increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables to communities in need while supporting small-scale farmers. WhyHunger applauds Senator Gillibrand’s amendment to the Specialty Crops Competitiveness Act of 2004 to provide funding to help food banks and food access networks work directly with farmers to purchase fresh, nutrient rich produce and the infrastructure they need to store and distribute it to the most vulnerable.  Facilitating direct relationships between specialty crop growers and food access networks is a win-win and will contribute to the strengthening of local and regional food and farm economies and nourishment of the American people.” - Noreen Springstead, executive director ofWhyHunger, a global non-profit working to end hunger and advance the human right to nutritious food
