By Glenn Hudson
For the Salisbury Post
Bread Riotís Winter Harvest program, which provides participants with fresh, cool-season produce from local farmers during the winter months, is now open for registration. The program runs for 20 weeks, from November to March, with food baskets provided every other week.
The Winter Harvest includes the best that local farmers have to offer, including vegetables such as collard greens, kale, potatoes and mushrooms, for example. Specialty items might include local meat products, nuts, goat cheese or dairy products. Eggs and bread also are available for an additional fee.
The cost to participate in the base program is $290, with $145 deposit due by Friday, October 28. Participants have until January to pay the balance of the program fee. There is a volunteer element to the program as well, with participants helping with farm pickups and food sorting. For more information, contact winterharvest@ breadriot.org. Complete program details and payment information are available at Bread Riotís website, www.breadriot.org.
Bread Riot is a Salisbury-based non-profit organization. Its mission is to cultivate a thriving local economy by facilitating a supply of locally produced food, utilizing sustainable farming practices and focusing on whole-life issues, education, and environmental concern.
