Neighbors Acting Together: Buying, Cooking, Connecting across Cultures...

Sign-up now for Cycle 3: March 18, 25, April 1, 8, 2017

Leaven Community NAT (Neighbors Acting Together) is an action in response to desire among neighbors to cultivate relationships and community in our neighborhoods.

     
Buying...
We use our collective power to save money and access sustainably grown organic and non-organic/non-GMO food through Charlies Produce, an employee owned NW business. Participants can start receiving produce anytime during the four-week cycle. Full-size orders (for larger households of 3 or more people) are $21 per week. Half-size orders (smaller households of 1-3 people) are $10.50 per week  Pick up is every Saturday at Leaven Community Center between 11am-2pm. Later pick-up is also an option.

 
Cooking, Connecting across Cultures
Throughout the cycles opportunities are provided for neighbors to gather together and deepen relationships while cooking, eating and sharing our stories. A dish reflecting the multicultural roots of participants is prepared with produce that may be new to some. There will also be sessions for intercambio (language exchange) in English and Spanish while cooking and sharing meals and stories. (More on intercambio to come).

Sign Up 
Sign up to participate in NAT online or by contacting the coordinators. Cash, check and debit cards are accepted and payment can be received prior to and on the first pick-up day. Cooking and Connecting sessions will be announced. 

NAT Food Access Fund
You can also participate in NAT by giving to the NAT Food Access Fund. This fund provides opportunities for families with limited income to participate in NAT. Gifts of $21.00 = two half or 1 full order,  $42.00 = four half or two full orders, $84.00 = 8 half or 4 full orders.
