UPDATE: This community is amazing! We have officially reached our matching campaign goal of $5,000 and accepted all of our outstanding PWYC requests. Any additional donations will allow us to open the application to others for this season.
-Endless thanks from The Good Acre team :)
The farm share was our first program and continues to be one of the key ways we invest in our local food system and community. Last year, our farm share members enabled us to spend nearly $265,000 with over 50 different local farms and small food businesses. We recognize that choosing whole, local produce is both an investment of time and money and not everyone has the financial means to make that choice.
That's why we offer a Pay What You Can option to lower the cost barrier to participating in our 18-week farm share. So far this season we've been able to fund 20 requests, covering over $4,800 in farm share payments, but we have expended all available funds and continue to receive applications. We are taking this opportunity to ask for your support to help us to raise $5,000 which will cover all outstanding requests.
A generous donor and farm share member is providing a $2,500 match, meaning your gift will be doubled! Help us share the joy of Minnesota-grown food with a donation today. Watch the video below to learn more about how the farm share supports our community.
