Supporting Community through Social Impact
Would you like to make a positive impact on the lives of families in your community? Have you heard about Corbin Hill’s Social Impact Program?
Our standard Farm Share pricing of $15 (small share) and $28 (large share) is still out of reach for many families, so last year we launched a tiered pricing model to increase access to our Farm Share to even more families who want to cook fresh, delicious and local produce. Instead of the standard price for a small produce share, we are able to offer the same share to EBT/SNAP users for less ($10 for small and $22 for large), thanks to the generous contributions of our many shareholders who are already participating in the Social Impact Program.
EBT = $10 and $22
Standard = $15 and $28
Social Impact = $20 and $35
We currently have nearly 200 shareholders in our EBT pricing tier, and almost 75 shareholders in the Social Impact pricing tier. Our goal is not only to match these numbers, but to expand participation on both sides, and we need your participation in order to make it happen!
Because Corbin Hill is a non-profit with a mission to supply fresh, local food to those who need it most, we seek out grant funding that allows us to keep our pricing at $15 for the Small Share and $28 for the Large Share, even though the true cost to operate is actually 30-40% higher. In essence, your farm share is already subsidized. While we work hard to maintain accessible pricing, we want to make sure it’s best utilized by those truly in need. If you have the economic means to pay a little extra, your dollars will go a long way toward putting more fresh fruits and veggies on NYC dinner tables.
If you’d like to join the community of Social Impact Shareholders, or if you would like to start paying with your EBT card to better stretch your limited dollars, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will update your account for you! You are able to opt-out and change your pricing tier at any time.
