Breakwater's Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Café

  • Next CSA Cafe: Friday, December 15
  • Menu: Japanese inspired! Miso Soup with Soba Noodles (like miso but with soba noodles), Sushi, Japanese Fried Rice, Cool Calamari Salad with Lettuce, Refreshing Seaweed Salad with Wakame and Cucumber, Japanese Cream Puffs (called Shu Cream Dessert), and Hot Tea!

In 2006 Breakwater’s students engaged in an integrated learning project that led them to actively follow their food from its source to their local grocery stores. Students visited many Community Supported Agricultural farms in the area, and travelled as far as Presque Isle to find organic wheat grown in Northern Maine and Freeport for naturally raised meats. They traveled to Linneus to grind their wheat and baked their own focaccia right in the ovens of Rosemont Market, just a half mile down the road from Breakwater. 

Out of this adventure, and their continued volunteer work on local farms, came the student's own desire to showcase Maine grown foods in meals prepared and shared with the school. The CSA Café was born! Since then the Café has become a sustainable, self supporting school-wide project. Each meal is thoughtfully planned and prepared primarily from locally sourced ingredients by children enrolled in the CSA Café Enrichment program. Meals always include vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options. Parents and extended family are always invited and are encouraged to stay and socialize in our fun, relaxed, welcoming environment.

CSA Cafe is a wonderfully popular event! So that we can plan ahead with enough food and seating, an RSVP IS REQUIRED each time you and/or your children plan to attend. Suggested Donation: $5.
