Want help paying for a CSA share?

March 11th, 2011

There are a few ways to make paying for your CSA share a little more manageable.

1.   You can use our payment plan:  sending two checks, one of them post dated for May 1st.

2.  Many insurance companies will reimburse you for a portion of your CSA share.  Dean Health, GHC-SCW, Physicians Plus, Unity Health- MACSAC has more info.  www.csacoalition.org

3.  The Partner Shares Program through MACSAC (Madison Area CSA Coalition).  www.csacoalition.org

4.  You can now pay for CSA shares with Food Stamps also through MACSAC.    www.csacoalition.org

Here's what MACSAC has to say for food stamps.   We can process anyone's payments of food stamps to purchase a CSA share.  Because of regulations on the program the food stamps need to be redeemed within 2 weeks of when the food is received so members can't just use up all of their food stamps and pay their share cost all at once, but we have them fill out a payment plan and send us their card number with the amount they want taken out each month, then we pay you (or whatever farm they choose) and get paid back over the course of the year.  Most folks who receive food stamps benefits are also eligible for Partner Shares fund assistance from us, if they are eligible then they only have to pay back 1/2 the share cost (we pay 1/2 the cost of a veg. share up to $300) and can elect to pay all in food stamps or with some food stamps and some post dated checks.
