The Spiritual Food CSA (SFCSA) is the local counterpart to the Spiritual Food’s nationwide Mail Order Service (MOS). CSA members may order at any time from the MOS to have items packed for pick up on Wednesdays with their share or, in the case of fresh fruit, to be shipped directly from the farm to you. For a list of these items please click here and scroll down to SFNM Biodynamic and Organic Food list.
The Bethesda location also carries items that may be found on location in person, or ordered for delivery to the other CSA sites with your share. We call this Shanti Yoga Prasad, as it began as an adjunt service to the yoga center here. We borrowed the Sanskrit word "prasad" (meaning food offered in worship) as we are offering these special/sacred items to our members. The list includes cooking oils, raw nut butters, and healthy snacks, and also body care (including Ayurvedic) and environmentally friendly cleaning products. All items are organic, Biodynamic, and or Fair Trade, and we only offer things that we in the Ashram have tried and use ourselves from places we believe deserve to be supported. For a list of available items please click here. This service is for local members and past members connected with the ashram; your friends are welcome but please refer them to contact us at 301-654-4899 before coming the first time so we may give them a brief overview of our self-serve operation.
From either product list, members may place a one-time or a “standing order”, meaning, they receive the same items weekly/bi-weekly/monthly (e.g.: yogurt, dozen eggs, fresh bread, etc.). Invoices are sent separately.
To place an order e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301-654-4899.
