Thank a Local Farmer Week (September 19-26) recognizes the vital and unique role local farmers have filled during a time of immense market disruption and a public health emergency.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 during Thank a Local Farmer Week to continue to support local farmers during the pandemic and build a healthier, more sustainable food system. 


Here’s how you can help…

Are you are a retailer?

If you source from our fundraising campaign’s founding partner, Four Seasons Produce, please consider ordering additional organic cases of produce between September 19–26, especially Lady Moons Farms and Mother Earth Mushrooms products. By sourcing from these businesses, you’ll be raising money for Pasa!

If you source from or carry any of these partners’ products, please purchase what you can this week to help raise money for Pasa.
