Transform Your Tax Refund into Healthy, Whole Food
Slow Food Indy works to promote eating locally produced, clean, whole food. This means seasonal fruits and veggies grown with little to no chemicals and meat from animals that are raised humanely on natural diets. One of the biggest obstacles to eating this way is almost always price. It is often more expensive, and less convenient, than typical diets making it hard for busy families on a budget.
So, this February, let us help you make an investment in healthier food that will nourish your family all year long. We’ve partnered with these local farms to get some bulk buying options together for you so when your tax refund hits your bank account you can stock up and live the slow food life in 2015!
Please be sure to tell our farmers that you heard about them through this promotion!

*CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture” – these programs are all a little different depending on the farm, but in general, you pay a fee that entitles you to a share of the harvest directly from a farm. It is an easy way to support local farms and purchase a bulk quantity of food at a lower price.
