CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) have continued their momentum in recent years and are starting to become a little more mainstream. Recently, my family subscribed to a meat CSA share based on the recommendation of a co-worker. I was always curious to see how a CSA share worked and if it was worth it. Well after taking the plunge, here are my initial thoughts along with some benefits that CSA programs can bring to Chicagoans and their communities.
Here on Chicago Rises, we’ve mentioned some of the great things going on at Zealous Good, but there’s much more you can learn. Zealous Good connects people and companies with items to donate with the nonprofit organizations and charities in Chicago that need them most. We recently had the opportunity to sit down and talk with its founder, Brittany Martin Graunke.
