Donor-Supported Farm Shares
 — one way that Just Roots is increasing access to healthy, local food for all of Franklin County. Buy a full-priced farm share for your household and help your neighbors get 20 weeks of fresh produce from the Greenfield Community Farm. Senior Farm Shares — half size and half price — are also available with boxed delivery to the Greenfield Senior Center or the Brick House in Turners Falls.

What is a Donor Supported Share?
Donor Supported Farm Shares are offered for $10/week to income qualifying households. Farm shares contain $30-40 of fresh, naturally grown fruits and vegetables each week – enough to feed a family of 3-4, or to share with friends!

Do you qualify?
To qualify for a Donor Supported Share, you must receive SNAP/EBT, WIC, SSI/SSDI/Disability Income; or, have a gross income of less than 130% of the poverty level. Shares are available on a first come, first served basis for those who qualify. Applicants will be notified by May 1 if they will receive a Donor Supported Share for 2015. All other applicants will be on a waiting list and will be notified as funds become available for additional shares.

Please download an Donor Supported Share application and return it by mail to:
