Mission Statement

CityFresh seeks to improve access to fresh, locally grown food while supporting local agriculture. This connection provides a more just and sustainable food system in Northeast Ohio. Produce from local farms and market gardens is brought to neighborhood pick up sites called Fresh Stops. This model re?duces our "carbon footprint" by decreasing the distance our produce has traveled.

Come volunteer for us! We have lots of opportunities - check out: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=cEwpuCxNTV4bNEY_2bx6NDmQ_3d_3d

Description

This summer, eat healthier, reduce your impact on the environment, and enjoy the area's freshest produce.

Through the laws of kashrut, udaism teaches us that eating is a sacred act, one that can bring us closer to G-d. Created in the image of G-d, we enjoy the pleasures of the physical world, but in such a way that we sanctify and elevate the pleasure through consciousness and sensitivity.

The Torah recognizes that the es?sential human need is not food, drink or comfort, but meaning. Juda?ism, through the dietary laws, injects meaning even into something as commonplace and instinctive as eating.

C ouple kashrut with our com?mandment to pursue justice, and many Jews are drawn to the idea of eco-kashrut. In recent decades, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and others have advocated a broadening of the concept of kashrut to include restrictions on consumption based on ecological considerations.

W hether you subscribe to this principle or not, it is hard to deny the adverse environmental and health impact of importing our foods from far-away lands.

J oin fellow East Siders in making a statement through your diet. Sign up for farm-fresh fruits and vegetables to improve your health, the environment, and to do one small act to make the world a better place.
