SEPTA | Sustainability | Farm-to-SEPTA Enters its Second Season

SEPTA | Sustainability | Farm-to-SEPTA Enters its Second Season: "When SEPTA included a commitment to access to local food via transit as a goal under its Sustainability Program Plan, it didn't realize how much momentum and new partnerships the goal would create both within the organization and in the communities it serves. To quote James Beard: "Food is our common ground, a universal experience." This has most certainly been the case as SEPTA moves into its second season of its Farm-to-SEPTA initiative.
The initiative includes two programs:
1) An employer-hosted CSA program, and
2) Farmers markets at SEPTA stations."
