The Brandeis Food Pantry is currently not accepting individual donations of any kind from our community members, while we determine the best way to ensure the safety of our community as it related to COVID-19. 

Warner Farms Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) 

This summer and early fall from June 13 to October 24, Warner Farms is again generously making fresh produce that is not picked up by its regular CSA members available to Brandeis undergraduate and graduate students.  Come inside the Spingold Theater entry at 7:00pm on Thursdays (please do not come before this time) for cabbage, kale, chard, beets, turnips, and whatever delicious surprise is still available.
