Farmigo ... Temple Israel's Online Farmers Market
Farmigo is an online
farmers market which delivers weekly bounties of fresh, seasonal
produce, meats, cheeses, breads and other goods sourced from local farms
and producers. Farmigo is a certified B
Corporation, which is to business what Fair Trade certification is to
coffee or what a USDA Organic certification is to milk and other
products. This company meets rigorous standards of social and
environmental performance, accountability and transparency.
delivers fantastic produce and artisan goods to Temple Israel every
Wednesday, making it easier than ever to make sure our families are
eating right and learning about where their food comes from. The food is
all harvested and made to order, so it's super fresh - and buying from
small farms supports sustainable practices and the local economy. Even
better, 10% of the total sales are donated back to Temple Israel every
week to support us in keeping with Farmigo's mission to be a socially
conscious partner with whom they do business. We are even working on creating a
Shabbat Box unique to Temple Israel of New Rochelle!
Ordering couldn't be easier - just sign up and head to www.farmigo.com/TINR
to start adding items to your basket. You have every week until Sunday,
at midnight, to place your order. The next day, the farmers and
producers harvest and pack your items, to be delivered every Wednesday
afternoon. You will be able to pick up your orders from the Temple
Israel lobby every Wednesday from 3 - 7 p.m. Updating your items is easy
- you can choose to have standing weekly orders or place them on a
week-to-week basis, and put your delivery on hold at any time. There are
no commitments, order minimums, or delivery fees. For your first order use the coupon code FARMIGO40 at checkout for a 40% discount! Temple Israel member, David Soberman, is happy to answer questions about this program - email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Doing Jewish - fulfilling mitzvot - cannot get any easier than this! Give it a try. For more information go to tinr.org/Farmigo!
