A summer share

What: We believe everyone has a right to high quality, locally grown produce. We don’t want cost to get in the way. The Fair Share is our sliding scale payment option where we work with you to set a fair price that fits with your budget. Join our program and get a box of fresh fruits and vegetables grown by local farmers every week from Spring through Fall. Plus, educational weekly newsletters, budget friendly recipes, and connections to other community resources.

When: April 7 through December 8, 2021

How: Pick up your bag from The Farm at St. Joe’s (5557 McAuley Dr, right on the hospital campus!) weekly. Map

How much: Range from $18 – $6.25/week

How to pay: We offer a sliding scale and alternative payment options, including SNAP/EBT. After you apply you will be contacted to confirm eligibility and discuss the discounted Fair Share rate, that works best for your family. 

Eligibility:  

  • Have children under 18+ living in the household or pregnant
  • Need for food assistance (examples include earning less that 80% of median income; having to choose between buying fresh fruits and vegetables and other necessities; having difficulty providing healthy meals; qualify for SNAP or WIC) 
  • Commitment and ability to picking up your box of veggies every week from April 7-December 8 (missing two weeks will remove you from the program).
