NOFA-NH's Farm Share Program
Prior to COVID-19, nine percent, or approximately 122,000 New Hampshire residents were food insecure. Rising unemployment due to the pandemic has resulted in a greater need to aid our state's food insecure residents. That’s why NOFA-NH partners with local farms and businesses to offer fresh, organic and nutrient dense food to our neighbors in need.
Our Farm Share Program provides funds for limited-income New Hampshire residents to purchase Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares, also known as farm shares, at discounted prices across the state. The program has partnered with 15 certified organic and organic practicing farms to provide 117 shares to 375+ community members since 2017. It especially benefits children, families, and seniors.
How It Works: NOFA-NH contributes 50% of funds toward each farm share, recipients contribute 25%, and farm partners donate the remaining 25%.
Share the Bounty Day 2021
During National Hunger Action Month in September, we'll be raising funds for NOFA-NH's 2022 Farm Share Program, which helps limited-income NH residents access certified organic CSA shares.
You can help support this program in the following ways:
Share the Bounty Day
On Sunday, September 19th, dine in, take out, or shop with the Kearsarge Food Hub, Revival Kitchen & Bar (Sept. 18), The Works Café, and Warner Public Market. Partner businesses will donate a portion of their sales or a predetermined amount to the program.
Round It Up
Round up your change when you shop at the Monadnock Food Co-op throughout September. Proceeds will go to support our Farm Share Program.
Participate in a Flatbread Company Community Bake
