Raising Dough: Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture

5 Jun
Last month, we were pleased to support Wildcare through our Raising Dough initiative! Wildcare is an urban wildlife rehabilitation center with an emphasis on educating city dwellers on safe and healthy cohabitation with the animals with whom we share our home. Our wonderful guests donated 74 dollars this last month which we doubled to total a 148 donation to support Wildcare’s mission. A huge thanks goes out to our community for continually dropping change in our donation box so we can continue to support our community!

This month, we will be supporting CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture), which is a non profit based in San Francisco and dedicated to cultivating a sustainable food system through the operation of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and through educational programs. The non profit was founded in 1994 to educate urban consumers about sustainable agriculture and to create links between San Francisco residents and local farmers. CUESA’s educational initiatives include cooking demonstrations, farm tours, youth programs, a weekly email newsletter, and more.

It is particularly exciting to support CUESA’s community, knowing that part of Flour & Co’s community of growers and food producers overlaps with the growers that CUESA supports at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. We share many common values including the importance of eating seasonal and local produce and of building community centered around agriculture, food production and the consumers. It is a pleasure to support CUESA this month through our Raising Dough Initiative.
Check out their website and join in a class, volunteering, or simply learning about the seasonal produce that you can enjoy at home!
