Senior Farm Share Program

Every year we partner with CISA to provide a farm share program for low-income seniors. If a variety of fresh organic vegetables from local farm Crimson & Clover sounds good to you, you should consider applying! The program lasts for 10 weeks, usually beginning in July, and if you are chosen it is just a one time $10 fee.

All applications should be submitted to the Senior Center no later than June 1, 2021

 

The requirements for the 2021 season are as follows:

To qualify for the program, you must be 60 years of age or older.

You must also be able to check at least ONE of these four qualifiers:

- I receive SNAP benefits (food stamps), Medicaid, SSI, AFDC, welfare, or veterans aid;
- I participate in the Food Bank’s Brown Bag Program;
- I live alone and my income is below $25,760;
- The total income of my household is below $34,840 (only one share per household please).

 I understand:

  • That if I am selected as a participant of the Senior FarmShare program, I will receive a weekly share of fresh, local produce, and that the shares will vary in size and content depending on the time of the season.
  • That there is no guarantee on the exact amount or type of produce I will receive in my share and that the farmer will supply a variety of fresh farm products.
  • That if I do not pick up my share on any given week, it will be donated to a low-income person or emergency food shelter. If I am unable to pick up my share for an extended period of time, I will notify my distribution manager.
