Join Parkchester CSA!

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs are so important to folks that want to eat healthy and know where their food comes from.  Joining a csa gives you access to local, fresh produce, often from a nearby family farm.  Also there are so many community and environmental benefits for joining a csa. We are fortunate to have a csa in Parkchester.  Join Parkchester CSA!

Turf’s breast cancer support group, Eat to Live!, met on March 30th at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church.  The group spent time sharing stories of surviving breast cancer, discussing challenges around eating healthy this Easter weekend, and reflecting on our cultural traditions around food.  A significant part of our meeting was also devoted to learning how to prepare a dish using quinoa and lentils and understanding the nutritional value of including both in our diets.

Our next workshop will be on April 27th at Parkchester Public Library located at 1985 Westchester Avenue (at Pugsley Avenue), Bronx, NY  10462.  Members of Eat to Live! will be leading this workshop focused on preparing healthy meals for families. If you would like to attend, please call 917-432-8494 or email contactturf@yahoo.com (registration is required).
