Your tax-deductible donation directly supports CUESA’s farmers markets and education programs, which serve thousands of Bay Area residents and more than 140 local farms and small food businesses.

CUESA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Federal Taxpayer ID Number 94-3212988). All donations to CUESA are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
