Company Overview:

City Fresh is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program of the New Agrarian Center. Since 2005, City Fresh has delivered weekly shares of produce to families in Cleveland and throughout northeast Ohio. Our nonprofit program is a direct response to the lack of available fresh and local produce in urban and peri-urban neighborhoods. We work with more than 20 small farmers within 70 miles of downtown Cleveland and deliver produce weekly to more than 600 shareholders in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties during our 20 week season. We are dedicated to our social justice mission and our support of small, sustainable, local farmers. We are currently the only CSA to have a limited income share option for qualifying participants, the only to accept the Ohio Direction Card, and the only to offer week-to-week purchasing.

The New Agrarian Center is committed to being an equitable employer and a diverse, affirming organization. We do not tolerate discrimination, including with regard to race, color, national origin, gender identity or expression, religion, age, ability, sexual orientation, family status, or criminal history.

We encourage applications from all qualified individuals including people with criminal histories, women, people of color, people with disabilities, and people in the LGBTQIA+ community.
