About the Webinar

CSA Partnerships for Health is a subsidized community supported agriculture program in Portland, Ore. that connects Federally Qualified Health Centers with CSA farms to increase food security and improve nutrition and health among patients. A Federally Qualified Health Center is a community-based health center that provides primary care services in underserved areas and serves all individuals regardless of their ability to pay for services. The program is a community-based participatory research project that began in 2014 and involves 15 academic and community partners.
