North Oakland’s Phat Beets to Launch CSA Box


Coming soon to a stoop near you: The Beet Box. Continuing its mission of getting healthy food to members of disadvantaged and low-income communities, North Oakland-based Phat Beets Produce has announced a new Community Support Agriculture (CSA) box distribution system that will rely upon residential drop points to reach neighborhoods not served by farmers’ markets. The weekly boxes will feature organic and pesticide-free fruits and vegetables grown by small farmers in Monterey County and Fresno and will cost $24 for a full share (eleven to fourteen items) or $12 for a half share.
