Farmer John Writes: We Did It! Tons of It!

 In Farm News

A Fabulous Achievement

255 shareholders and other friends of the farm, along with a 100-box donation from Farmer John, fulfilled our campaign of gifting 700 boxes of organic squash and potatoes to the food insecure of Chicagoland through the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

A Huge Thank You to All who Donated

Thank you for bringing your holiday spirit to those who are in need, to those who will be warmed through with our holiday vegetables. What a fabulous community!

14 Tons

700 boxes of squash and potatoes—that’s about 28,000 pounds of nutritious, organic vegetables grown by Angelic Organics. That’s a lot of holiday nutrition.

When? How?

Tomorrow, Tuesday, December 20th, we will load 14 one-ton pallets into a semi-trailer provided by the Greater Chicago Food Depository for distribution to food banks, shelters and soup kitchens in Greater Chicago and beyond.

Happy Holidays, My Friends

Your kindness and generosity warmed our holidays here at Angelic Organics, warmed the holidays for those who work at the Greater Chicago Food Depository, and will help to warm those in need throughout Chicagoland.

Next Up: Gift Shares

If you are interested in buying a 2023 Angelic Organics CSA share as a holiday gift for a loved one, you will soon receive an email with instructions on how to do so.

With Great Appreciation,
Farmer John
