TO: Faculty and Staff, Medford/Somerville
FROM: Tufts Dining
Have you signed up to receive fresh, local produce weekly through the Tufts CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program? It’s not too late. Your CSA weekly produce share supports New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and Tufts Dining employees.
This year, Tufts Dining is collaborating with the Office of Sustainability, Human Resources Health & Wellness, and New Entry Sustainable Farming Project. For the first time, starting this fall, the campus-wide CSA shares will include featured recipes from the Tufts Dining staff, and there will be live cooking demos in Dewick-MacPhie at the pickup location.
By signing up for the CSA share, you support the creativity of the Dining team members. Each week, our cooks, chefs and staff who want to, will create recipes featuring the weekly produce. In your CSA box, you will receive a recipe or two and an inspiring story about the person who created it. Experience new flavors, learn about someone who helps nourish our community, and support their creative exploration and cultural heritage as our Dining employees share their flavorful ideas and a bit about themselves with our broader Tufts Community.
How to sign up for the Tufts NESFP
Sign up for 10 or 20-weeks of farm-fresh produce grown by local small-scale farmers. Shares are available for pickup weekly on Tuesdays, starting June 18, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the lobby of Dewick-MacPhie Dining Center. Don’t forget, shares provide produce for 3-4 people for the week. Too much food? Many people partner with a colleague to split cost.

Tufts Faculty and Staff can now use payroll deduction for CSA shares.
When you purchase a New Entry CSA share you get super high-quality, freshly harvested, all-local produce while supporting the next generation of farmers! The New Entry Food Hub CSA is a program of the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, an initiative of Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy and additional partners.
