FairShare’s Partner Shares program is now accepting applicants for the 2016 season.
Partner Shares is a cost-sharing program that provides financial assistance to limited-income households for purchasing CSA vegetable shares. People can get half the cost of their share paid for up to $300 if they meet eligibility guidelines, which you can find here.
The Partner Shares program makes joining a CSA farm more affordable for everyone. Its easy to sign up following the steps here. Applicants are recommended to complete and submit their Partner Shares application by March 18, 2016 for the 2016 growing season. Any interested households are encouraged to contact FairShare CSA Coalition to check on availability throughout the year. Requests for Partner Shares funding assistance are granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
You can even pay your share using SNAP/Food Share/EBT! Contact the FairShare office at (608) 226-0300, if you are interested in paying using these options.
