The subsidized share program is a way to make fresh, organic, local produce available to those with limited incomes.
Subsidized shares are made possible through the generosity of Garden of Eve and the core group, and are given out on an as-needed basis, to the extent that we can afford to subsidize them.
Interested individuals are invited to submit a request via the form at the bottom of this page. The request should outline the reason for the request. Referrals of candidates by CSA members are especially welcome.
Anyone can apply for a subsidized share, and all applications are reviewed with respect to the confidentiality of the applicants by a small committee of core members. The enrollment period ends on June 16th.
The following considerations will inform the selection of candidates:
– Hardship at the time of the application
– Time of the receipt of the application
– Qualification for government assistance such as WIC, EBT, or disability (SSI)
– A total household income equal to or below the amount indicated in the chart below
(the number of people eating the share -whether or not they are related)
(Household’s total pre-tax income from all sources)
Subsidized shares are given out on the honor system, although the core group reserves the right to request supporting documents.
