Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture to make food available to more people

August 11, 2010 | 6:49 p.m. CDT
At the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture's production farm, labor that began in January 2010 bears fruit as summer delivers ripe produce. The farm, at corner of Fay Street and Smith Street will make its fruits, vegetables and herbs available to people in a new way by adopting the EBT system, which is similar to food stamps but uses debit cards. Staffed by volunteers, produce is sold at the site on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, between 4 and 8 p.m. Adam Saunders, president of CCUA's board of directors, explains the new system.
