Q&A Session: SNAP Incentives in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Programs

Tuesday August 31, 9am PT / 12pm ET. Register!

Offering SNAP incentive through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program is an innovative way to expand local food access and form direct connections between consumers and farmers. Farmers Market Coalition, through the Nutrition Incentive Hub, is hosting an open Q&A session for GusNIP grantees who are currently working with or would like to expand their SNAP incentive programs to CSAs. 

In this session, Liv Froehlich and Carrie Sedlak from FairShare CSA Coalition will spend some time talking about their Partner Shares program, which offers a unique, sliding scale model to make CSAs in the Midwest more affordable. The later half of the session will be open for attendees to express challenges they have faced when trying to incorporate SNAP incentive programs into the CSA model.

Information collected during this session will guide the way the Farm Direct team of the Nutrition Incentive Hub provides support to grantees around CSAs, including resource development and direct technical assistance. Join us whether you’ve been working with CSAs for many years or are just thinking about getting started!

If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in this meeting, please contact  Diana Broadaway, Network Coordinator at diana@farmersmarketcoalition.org no later than August 27th, 2021. The recording and  slides from the webinar will be shared with all registrants.  

The Nutrition Incentive Program Training, Technical Assistance, Evaluation, and Information Center (NTAE) is supported by Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive  Program grant no. 2019-70030-30415/project accession no. 1020863 from the USDA  National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
