The food pantry services of the Center for Child Development Support Corporation (CDSC) became interested in food production and wanted to provide patrons with healthy, clean produce.  Since 2012, CDSC has been efficiently operating a two-tiered, 3 rack shallow-raft system at their Classon Ave location. All food goes directly to feeding those in need.
