Immune Booster CSA Pick up Protocol

First of all, thank you for purchasing the Immune Booster CSA box.  We will be changing our distribution location for Chelsea members now to the Chelsea Farmers Market for the SUMMER starting June 3, so scroll down past the map to review your Pick-Up Protocol. Our pick-up hours for Spring/Summer are from 9 AM -12 PM at both locations until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but always contact us if you need to come a little earlier, since our staff is there earlier than that, since we will be setting everything up.  If you sign up for an Immune Booster share box, you will receive your Pick Up Protocol email and a Weekly Newsletter email every Friday with a description of the items in the share, how to use them in easy ways, and recipes.

**PICK-UP PROTOCOL AT THE WASHTENAW FOOD HUB – 4175 Whitmore Lake Rd., Ann Arbor (9 AM – 12 PM):

We are asking our patrons to park in parking spaces in front of the store or across the parking lot and load their own share boxes into their vehicles, just as was usually done in previous years. Ryan and crew will still be there to greet and provide assistance from a safe distance and be available for any questions. To recap our procedure is as follows:

1. Upon arrival at the Washtenaw Food Hub, please park your vehicle in front of the porch with the sun window or in the parking spaces directly across the parking lot from the porch.

2. Then check-in with our Staff on the porch, so that we can check your name off the Sign In List. We have our Summer CSA members picking up at the same time, so please let the Greeter know which CSA you are picking up.

3. There will be multiple stations on the porch with your share boxes, so stop at any station and load your box.  If you need help carrying the box to your vehicle, please let our staff know.

4. If you have a special box with any dietary restrictions, please let Ryan know, so he can get the appropriately labeled box.

5. If you are returning any empty CSA boxes to reuse, please leave them at the designated spot that Ryan directs you to on the porch.

6. Optional stop in the Farm Market space for purchase of eggs, honey, oats, beans, bread, frozen items, fresh produce extras, and other items from local food artisans. 

7. Follow the usual exit signs back to Whitmore Lake Road and take your new box home to enjoy!

8. Please remember to be kind and patient, as you wait to gather your things. Friendly waves are so appreciated, as we try to help you with your share in an efficient and safe manner.

9. Please contact Deb at 734-385-6748 if something has come up, you are running late, or you need to get your box later in the day or the next day at the Food Hub, since we will just put it in our reach-in cooler on the front porch with your name on it.

Palmer Commons 304 South Main St., Chelsea (9 AM – 12 PM):

  1. Simply look for the white or red canopy with the Tantre Farm sign and ask the Tantre
    staff member to check off your name on the Pick Up List, and they will show you where
    your box is located.
  2. You may unpack your box into your own carry containers or you may return the box the
    following week.
  3. If you need curbside assistance, please let a Chelsea Farmers Market staff/volunteer
    know and they will come to our stall, check off your name, and provide you with your
    share box.
