Community outreach, education and personal stories are helping to dispel myths and reduce the stigma surrounding mental illnesses.Everyone has the ability to help to “Make It Ok” to talk about mental illness and stop stigma.

LAKE SUPERIOR (BAYFIELD FOODS) CSA ORDERS STILL OPEN FOR 2018! - First of all for those of you who are new to this, CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. You’ll receive the freshest and tastiest produce you can ever imagine through a CSA (unless you have your own garden, and then it’s hard to compare), along with the option to purchase meats, baked goods and other locally sourced items. The best part (in my opinion) is that you are supporting local farmers who use organic methods to raise their crops/animals/etc. Clean, real food.
The City of Duluth is a drop-site for the Bayfield Foods/Lake Superior CSA and if you choose to order, you will be able to pick up your food box from City Hall on a weekly (or bi-weekly) basis. We also receive a 5% discount for being a host. To learn more or place and order check out Bayfield Foods
