In the spirit of holiday giving, “Clients Who Care” is a blog series that recognizes some of the recent acts of kindness and caring demonstrated by Clairemont clients. We hope these stories inspire you to be charitable this holiday season and throughout 2015. Happy Holidays!
Having been a supporter of the CSA box delivery concept for years, I was thrilled when we got the opportunity to work with Papa Spud’s. For those of you not familiar, Papa Spud’s is a farm to fork delivery service that has been serving the Triangle since 2008. The team works with more than 50 local farmers and artisans to fill community supported agriculture (CSA) boxes each week. Unlike other CSA services, Papa Spud’s offers dairy, meat and an assortment of items along with a wide variety of fruits and veggies, so each box is completely customizable to meet the needs of individual families.
During our work together these past few months, we learned that Papa Spud’s believes in the importance of giving back not just during the holiday season, but all year long. In addition to serving Triangle residents and educating them about the importance of eating healthy and supporting local farmers, Papa Spud’s is giving back to our community in a significant way. Each week, Papa Spud’s donates an estimated 300 to 400 pounds of leftover food to the Interfaith Food Shuttle. Interfaith is an amazing organization and this donation, no doubt, has a huge impact on the programs and people they are able to support.
In addition to the weekly Interfaith donations, Papa Spud’s also supports various organizations and charities with food donations throughout the year. We salute Rob and his team for all they do to serve their customers, educate Triangle residents about the importance of eating local foods and by giving back to those in need. Here’s to a bountiful 2015!
