Shares and a la carte

What is a share?

A share is an agreement between a buyer and seller that commits an agreed upon amount of product to be distributed to the buyer over a specified amount of time. In the case of our CSA, a vegetable share for example commits the farmer to provide the shareholder with vegetables for 22 weeks.

How do I claim my share?

Shares must be claimed in-person at our distribution location on the pick-up day.

Hour Children Food Pantry
36-49 11th St (inside a parking lot)
Long Island City, NY 11106

What should I bring when picking up my shares?

A shopping bag and a few smaller bags to separate the different items in your share. If you purchase eggs and fruit, eggs cartons and containers for your berries are useful.

What if I cannot pick up a share?

Ask a friend to pick up for you or post to our Facebook group. If no one can pick up for you, your share will be donated to the Hour Children Food Pantry. We do not have the space, refrigeration, or manpower to hold your shares, and you will not be refunded for any shares that you do not pick up.
