We are part of a program called Farm Fresh Rewards that helps more members of our community can eat well and support local farmers.
Anyone who receives SNAP benefits can sign up at the Co-op to participate in Farm Fresh Rewards.
How does it work?
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.
