With the increase in food prices, consumers everywhere are looking for ways to stretch their food dollar and get high quality, nutritious food for their families without breaking the bank. Another option is to invest in a community supported agriculture (CSA) program which provides all participants with healthy, locally grown produce many times at a lower overall cost because participants are buying straight from the farmer.

Dine Out for Farms™ is a nationwide celebration of delicious food and the farmers and land needed to grow it; the weeklong event raises money to save farms and farmland.
