We all like farm fresh food, and even more so when you can buy it at a fair price?
Back in the height of the coronavirus, nonprofit AdkAction teamed up with nonprofit food hub/commercial kitchen Hub on the Hill. Together, they produced and delivered thousands of Emergency Food Packages to those in need.
Since then, the concept has evolved into Farm Fresh Packages, open to all for purchasing through the Hub’s website. And in select areas in the Adirondacks, there’s even a home-delivery option.
For folks of limited means, a “fair pricing” option is in place. AdkAction helped The Hub become an authorized a SNAP vendor, so they can now accept SNAP (also known as “Food Stamps”). They are also utilizing incentive programs, like Double Up Food Bucks. This Fair Pricing system helps keep local, farm fresh food affordable. (SNAP customers, for instance, have the potential to receive one of these packages for 65% off the retail price.)
