Want to help local farmers connect with Philadelphia customers? The Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative (LFFC) is recruiting enthusiastic volunteers to host weekly deliveries of fresh organic produce to neighborhoods in Philadelphia.
The LFFC is holding its “Site Host Information Session” Feb. 15 at Ultimo Coffee (1900 S. 15th St.) from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. for those interested in volunteering. Volunteers would host a weekly pick-up site at their home or business as part of LFFC’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.
The LFFC is a nonprofit organic farmers’ cooperative of more than 75 farmers in Lancaster County, Pa. The CSA program allows area residents to purchase a subscription before the season begins, to help the farm operation when start-up costs are high and farm operation is at its lowest. In return, members receive a weekly box of fresh and nutritious produce.
The event will consist of informative presentations and a question and answer session. Both prospective and current volunteers are encouraged to attend.

Also, registration is open for winter, spring and summer CSA shares.
