SNAP and Sponsored Shares
We offer discounted CSA shares of farm produce to low-income families who want to be a part of a community supporting local agriculture. Both of the programs below refer to full-season (23 week) shares, which begin the first week of June.
Whether you are participating in CSA is a SNAP or our Sponsored Share program, you are welcome to pick up your share either at PFP (51 Vassar Farm Lane) OR in the City of Poughkeepsie at Sun River Health (75 Washington Street).
CSA is a SNAP is a new pilot program that offers a 50% discount to members purchasing a share using SNAP/EBT. This program allows members paying with SNAP/EBT to do so on a weekly basis, when picking up their share. With this discount, half shares cost $11/week, and whole shares cost $20/week. CSA is a SNAP is a collaboration with the Hudson Valley CSA Coalition.
