Affordability & Financial Assistance
We believe that healthy & healthily grown food should be accessible to all. We are proud to be endorsed by FairShare CSA Coalition, an organization that shares this vision. Because we are a FairShare endorsed farm, our members can take advantage of the following benefits.
Health Insurance Rebates
Health Insurance Rebates are offered by GHC – SCW. Physicians Plus members can receive WellPlus points for purchasing a CSA share. Quartz members stay tuned as they are rolling out a new incentive program for 2018.
Through FairShare’s Partner Shares Program, income eligible households can apply for assistance toward the purchase of a CSA share with Meadowlark Community Farm. If you are eligible for SNAP benefits, the WIC program, or your children are eligible for free or reduced lunch at school, your family qualifies for this funding. Assistance is available for up to 50% toward the cost of the share, with a maximum of $300 of total assistance per household. The application for the Partner Shares program opens on January 15th and assistance is granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Our membership has generously donated funds to our Meadowlark Community Fund which can also to subsidize the cost of your CSA share.
FairShare CSA Coalition has the ability to process SNAP (food stamp benefits, also known as Quest, EBT or Foodshare). If you are interested in using these benefits to go towards your CSA share, let us know. We will connect you with FairShare!
