Corbin Hill’s mission is to supply fresh, local food to those who need it most. We have always been driven by our values and vision of achieving racial equity, food sovereignty and shifting power. As part of this power shift, Corbin Hill has worked to develop a flexible Farm Share model that prioritizes the needs of low-income communities through pricing and location. As a nonprofit, Corbin Hill seeks grant funding that allows us to offer standard Farm Share prices of $15 and $28. Without this grant funding, the true cost of the Farm Share would be 30-40% higher.
While many of our Farm Share sites operate in communities where access to fresh, local produce is traditionally limited, we understand that our diverse community of Shareholders come from different economic means, even within neighborhoods that have a higher degree of food insecurity. As such, we are rolling out a new Social Impact Share- a pricing tier that invites Shareholders with greater means to pay slightly more, making it possible for us to offer a lower priced Share to low-income families using EBT/SNAP. By purchasing a Social Impact Share*, you help contribute to greater food security by lowering the cost of Farm Share for another family in your community.
Consider paying more if you:
Have investments, retirement accounts or inherited money
Have access to family resources in times of need
Work Part Time, by choice
Have a relatively high earning power due to level of education, gender or racial privilege, citizenship status, class background, etc.

"While I am not wealthy, I know that I have more than others and I can afford an additional $5 to help someone gain access to fresh, good quality produce."
