Use your SNAP benefits to get the freshest, tastiest vegetables from farmers who are growing food for the community with love for the earth.
The Hudson Valley CSA Coalition is piloting a new CSA model: one that improves the accessibility and affordability of local food but still provides farmers with the upfront resources they need.
How it works: There is no upfront payment for you as a SNAP customer, but you can help support your farmer by committing to buying weekly shares for the full season, usually about 20-24 weeks from June through November.
- Step 1: Contact one of the participating farms listed below.
- Step 2: Make sure the farm knows that you would like to use your SNAP benefits to pay when you sign up. Some farms reserve shares for SNAP customers, although other shares may be sold out.
- Step 3: Pay weekly with your EBT card and at a 50% discount when you pick up your share from the farm or the designated distribution site in your community. Shares range in cost from $10-$17 per week for about 8-10 items (a $20-$34 value).
