"A CSK doesn't just deliver local, sustainable product, it provides you with a ready-to-eat meal."
You try your best to be green, buying local when you can, recycling, conserving water, the list goes on. But when it comes to participating in a Community Supported Agriculture (or CSA) share, you stop short. Unknown quantities of a random assortment of vegetables piling up on you week after week? Eeek.
If this sounds like you, or maybe you don't like too cook or find it too time-consuming or too isolating, Community Supported Kitchens to the rescue!
A Community Supported Kitchen (CSK) is a new idea to connect farmers and eaters, especially those eaters who wand to eat locally, but currently don't. CSKs are a totally new model: they're not a catering company and not quite a private home chef. These cooperative kitchens take away the mystery of what to do with those vegetables and all the cooking that comes along with them. They buy fruit, vegetables, meat, and eggs from local farms and transform them into meals for sale to that same community, all the while using super-high standards for environmental stewardship.
