Newark Science and Sustainability, Inc. (Newark SAS) will be expanding its Farm to Table Co-op after a successful launch in 2018. Following the model of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, a system in which a farm operation is supported by shareholders within the community, individuals will be able to make an advance payment of $395 to receive weekly fresh, locally grown produce packages, feeding 2 to 4 people for 20 weeks (June – October). This also comes with cooking demonstrations, nutrition fact sheets, conversation with the farmers, and so much more.
You could also sponsor a family. Click the link to sign-up today by completing the Sponsorship Form.
Sponsor a Family
By sponsoring a family, your membership ensures that fresh, healthy food reaches the tables of those residing in neighborhoods throughout the Greater Newark community defined as a food desert (neighborhoods that lack access to healthy food) or has no reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.

Sponsors could either chose a full membership, providing produce packages for 20 weeks ($395) or a partial membership, providing produce packages for 10 weeks ($200).

On Saturday, December 17, 2016, Tobias A. Fox, Founder of Newark Science and Sustainability, Inc. (Newark SAS), in collaboration with the Harvest Table eatery located at 550 Broad Street, Newark, NJ 07102, will be rolling out the green carpet to celebrate the success of Newark SAS as well as Fox’s birthday, and raise money for projects planned in 2017.

“We have a lot of events planned for 2017 and in order to bring in the New Year with a leading start we need the support of the community. And to top it off, people will help me celebrate my bday, Sagittarius style,” states Fox.

You make it possible for youth to participate in our programs such as our Eco Art Summer Camp or enjoy our Pedal Bike Powered Smoothie Bar. It is because of you that I refuse to give up hope or lose the will to continue being of service.”
