This last spring, Harbortown Rotary purchased two of CHUM's 43 CSA food shares to provide the benefit of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables to those in need. Harbortown donated the food shares rather than a cash donation to CHUM during their March food drive due to the greater impact made. Read the original story below in the Duluth News Tribune to learn more about an example of what amazing and impactful Harbortown funds throughout the year. 

This spring, the food shelf partnered with 10 regional farms from Duluth, to Esko, to Bayfield, to bring 43 weekly community-supported agriculture shares to its clients at the food shelf, at Steve O’Neil and on the Iron Range, said Scott Van Daele, CHUM director of distributive services. The shares — equivalent to nearly 4,800 pounds of food — were funded in part by CHUM’s March campaign that brought in nearly $221,000.
