A new program to help those in need has launched in New York. It gives people receiving SNAP benefits greater access to food grown by local farmers, reports Pix11.


Organizations throughout New York can now apply to participate in the FreshConnect Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. The program is a system that allows people to pay in advance for a share of the farm's harvest and then receive the produce weekly.

According to government officials, the goal of a CSA is to give participants SNAP the opportunity to gain access to locally produced products while supporting farmers and producers.

The program partially covers the cost of weekly purchases, helping recipients SNAP provide access to locally produced food. The price of food to consumers will be lower, but farmers will still be paid full price for their produce, state officials said.

FreshConnect CSA can pay up to 50% of the cost of groceries sold to a SNAP recipient.

Applications for participation in the program must be submitted by 15:00 on August 27 - this can be done here.

A webinar explaining how FreshConnect CSA works will take place on June 18th.
