NOFA-VT believes all people, regardless of circumstance, should have access to local, organic food that is nourishing and supports our working landscape. Our Community Food Security programs support the many farmers and farm businesses that are committed to feeding everyone in their communities. They serve as a key mechanism for engaging Vermonters seeking the opportunity to participate in a just and sustainable food system.
Our community food access programs include:
The Farm Share Program subsidzies CSA shares from local farms
The Senior Farm Share Program provides $50 worth of local produce to seniors living at participating housing sites
Crop Cash doubles 3SquaresVT/SNAP benefits at farmers markets
Customers receive 50% off fresh produce when they spend 3SquaresVT/SNAP benefits at participating farm stands
NOFA-VT supports direct market farms and farmers markets that want to accept 3SquaresVT/SNAP benefits
