For the 2017 season, Farmer Dave’s is participating in a pilot program organized by the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance and Project Bread.
Through this program, paying with EBT/SNAP is easier than ever, for both the members and the farmers.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
The SNAP pilot program lets you purchase shares of fresh, affordable fruits and vegetables from Farmer Dave’s with your SNAP benefits during the CSA season.
Your CSA payment is debited from your EBT card the same day you get SNAP benefits each month.
Once you sign up, you can pick up your share each week from a convenient pick-up site near your community.
