Community-supported agriculture programs pay their farmers up front so that they can buy seeds and tools. Although SNAP users can’t use food stamps to pay a lump sum in February for vegetables they’ll receive in June, Christ Church can pay the farmer now and accept repayment in food stamps during the delivery season from June to November. The number of shares is limited, however—the church can cover up to three full shares or six half shares. Please contact Susan Fowler for more information: 917 734-3746.
You can also join and pick "Food Stamps/SNAP" as your payment option (even if you don't have food stamps but just need to pay weekly). Our send us an email using the Contact form and selecting SNAP.
