Farm Fresh Rewards

 

We are part of a program called Farm Fresh Rewards that helps more members of our community can eat well and support local farmers.

Who can use Farm Fresh Rewards?

Anyone who receives SNAP benefits can sign up at the Co-op to participate in Farm Fresh Rewards.

How does it work?

Participants receive a $5 voucher to spend on local fruits and vegetables for every $5 they spend on all local foods.

How can I sign up?

To sign up, simply ask a Co-op employee for a Farm Fresh Rewards sign-up form.  It only takes a few minutes to get you signed up, and you can start shopping and earning vouchers that same day.

Where can I earn and redeem vouchers?

Anyone earning vouchers at the Co-op can redeem them here and also at other participating locations.  Vouchers earned at other participating locations can also be redeemed at the Co-op.

Just note that you will need to sign up for the program at each store.  If you sign-up for the program at the Co-op, and then visit another store, you will need to sign-up with them as well.  Fortunately, the sign-up process is quick and easy.

How is the program funded?

The program is supported through a Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) grant that Maine Farmland Trust was awarded through the United States Department of Agriculture. This is one of the only retail-based incentive programs across the nation focusing exclusively on local products.
