Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association
SNAP Incentives for CSA Farms

 

MOFGA is very thankful to be the recipient of federal Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) funds as a subgrantee of Wholesome Wave and a Member of the Wholesome Wave National Nutrition Incentive Program Network. MOFGA is a member of the Maine Local Food Access Network, which put in a grant to the FINI program through Wholesome Wave, with Maine Farmland Trust as fiscal sponsor. MOFGA's portion of the funds allow seven certified organic farms in 2015 (eight to ten in 2016 and 2017) to offer 50% off the price of their CSA shares to customers with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly food stamps, now: SNAP) funds. For more information, please contact Heather Omand, Marketing and Business Coordinator, at homand@mofga.org.
