Welcome to Michigan Farm to Family: CSA

The Program

Michigan Farm to Family: CSA is an innovative program that makes it possible for families on tight budgets to purchase and consume more fresh fruits and vegetables and strengthen their local food systems.

 

Become a CSA Member

In a typical CSA model, people join as CSA members by making a financial investment and buy a “share” of the farm’s production before each growing season. In return, they receive regular distributions of the farm’s bounty throughout the season

Through MF2FCSA, participating families do not have to pay any costs up front, will pay a significantly reduced price, and will pay upon pick up using SNAP benefits. For example, if the CSA member share is $20 per box of fresh produce, participating families pay just $5 with their SNAP benefits, and the program pays the remaining $15.

 

Nutrition Education Resources

In addition to fresh fruits and vegetables, families will receive tips to prepare, cook and store the produce they receive through our SNAP-Ed partner nutrition educators.
