City Of Burien Teams Up With Farmers’ Co-op For Delivery Of Organic Produce
The City of Burien announced Thursday (May 5) that residents are now able to get fresh organic produce and local artisan foods delivered conveniently to the Burien Community Center.
The City Parks Recreation & Cultural Services (PaRCS) Department has teamed up with Full Circle Farms, a farmers’ cooperative, to be a host site for their delivery program of Farm-to-Table produce. The program in Burien is modeled after a similar effort at Tacoma’s community centers. The first delivery in Burien was on May 3.
Residents can sign-up online to receive routine delivery of customized orders containing fresh fruits and vegetables. Boxes are delivered to the Community Center on Tuesday mornings. Members are able to pick up their boxes on Tuesdays from 3 – 7 p.m. or Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The PaRCS Dept. is participating in the program to provide a healthy service and promote good nutrition in the community as part of the “Healthy Highline” initiative. PaRCS also hopes to attract new community members to the community center through this program and expose them to its many programs.
