Dear Farm to Families customers,

Years ago, we began distributing fresh produce from our Garden Center to fill the need for
healthy, affordable food in Fishtown and surrounding neighborhoods. Through the years, we
have gained many loyal customers and partnered with St. Christopher's Foundation for
Children to drive food accessibility in the neighborhood. We've come remarkably far and are
excited about the number of CSAs and fresh grocers that now service the community, as well
as the future opening of the Kensington Community Food Co-op.

As part the move of NKCDC's main offices to Orinoka Civic House (2771 Ruth St), we are
relocating the Farm to Families distribution center. The last Farm to Families distribution at
the Garden Center will be Thursday, March 22, 2018. Distribution from Orinoka Civic
House will increase our reach in an area lacking accessibility to affordable produce and food
education. Our move accompanies years of outreach and efforts to address food insecurity and
public health in the neighborhood.

Our new distribution center in Orinoka Civic House's community room is only a few steps
away from the Somerset MFL Station on the corners of Ruth and Somerset Streets. We hope
you'll join us at our upcoming Open House on Thursday, March 29 in the Orinoka
Community Room (2771 Ruth St) from 4 to 7pm. Come see our new space and the
future home of NKCDC's offices. Bring the whole family for food demonstrations and
activities! If you order a box for that week, it will be waiting for you at the Open House.
We thank you for your support and hope that you will continue to join us at Orinoka Civic
House. If you are unable to stay on with Farm to Families, below are just a few of the resources
offering affordable, organic foods in the Riverwards. Please reach out to us with any questions.
