Sign up for Fruit/Vegetable Share

Are you looking for low-cost, healthy and locally sourced fruits and vegetables? Join our Weekly Fruit/Vegetable Share!


HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
Our weekly Fruit/Vegetable Share brings local produce to two neighborhoods in New Bedford (with plans to expand to more sites!). We deliver a share (sizes vary) that look something like this each week:

Customers can buy shares of fresh, affordable fruits and vegetables– all sourced from a local farmer–with your SNAP benefits (food stamps) and/or cash/check during the Farm Share season (June-October). Your payment is debited from your EBT card the same day you get SNAP benefits each month (see more info below). If you are paying with cash/check, you will pay the farmer at the beginning of each month. Once you sign up, you can pick up your share each week from a convenient pick-up site near your community.
