The popular Clayton eatery is now offering subscriptions to its new CSA, which will include a bag of locally produced food each week for pick-up, as well as house-made delights from their kitchen, courtesy of chef JOSH GALLIANO. There are several levels and types of subscriptions to choose from, including omnivorous, paleo, vegetarian and vegan options.

Crushed Red Urban Bake and Chop Shop is doing its part to help give back to the community with its new Community Table program.

The organization has all day to get as many supporters to dine at Crushed Red as possible. Interested groups can contact Candace LaRocca in Clayton (725-8007) or Lou Garesché in Kirkwood (238-0100) to schedule a Community Table event.
