Fair Shares CCSA

Every week, Fair Shares CCSA coordinates with dozens of local farmers and food producers to offer members a collection of the freshest food available in St. Louis. Coordinating over 450 members’ shares is a daunting task, and as they grew, Fair Shares knew they needed an improvement to their online membership and management program.

Starting with Fair Shares’ basic Drupal installation, Spry upgraded the site, first to Drupal 6.1 and later, to Drupal 7, adding and updating modules while making the site more user-friendly. A theme refresh was not far behind, and Spry developed a custom child of the Zen framework based on the original look and feel, adding a Recipe section for members and CiviCRM to facilitate member account management, an online payment system, and custom reports to simplify bookkeeping.

Spry also helped Fair Shares develop business process improvements, such as Google Business Apps setup and an integrated website/newsletter feature to make life easier for Fair Shares.

Fair Shares continues to grow, adding new member shares each year. The site now features profiles of local food producers and is a great resource for tasty recipes and food tips.
