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 certified organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares, also known as farm shares, at discounted prices across the state. The program has partnered with 13 certified organic farms to provide food access to over 250 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%.
Now accepting Farmer Applications for 2021!
Farms wishing to participate in the Farm Share Program must be certified organic for livestock and/or crops, must be a member farm of NOFA-NH, and must have an existing CSA program as part of their operations.
Please contact us with questions about this application or program at 603-224-5022 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
