What it Costs

Becoming a member of the Bronx CSA can costs less than purchasing your produce from a grocery store. A sliding scale, based upon your income level, determines the exact cost of membership. Payment is expected prior to the start of the season unless you are using your SNAP/Food Stamps benefits.  If you are purchasing a share with your SNAP benefits, you are required to pay a 10% deposit with a check, money order, or in cash at the time you sign up for the share.  The remaining balance will be paid weekly or bi-weekly at distribution with your EBT card.

Share Cost for the 2015 Bronx CSA Season:

Income above $50,000

Full share —– $504
Half Share —– $250

Income between $35,000 and $50,000

Full share ——– $440
Half share ——– $230

Income between $25,000 and $35,000

Full share ———- $380
Half Share ———- $187

Income below $25,000

Full share ———– $307
Half Share ———– $151

Snap Benefit (Food Stamp) Share Cost

Full share ———– $128
Half Share ———– $64

 

For a member with income below $35,000, a deposit of at least 10% of the full cash payment must be made upon completing and signing the membership agreement. Payment of the remaining balance must be made prior to the beginning of the CSA season in June. If you need more time to pay, you can speak with the CSA coordinator to make payment arrangements.

 

For a member purchasing a share with SNAP benefits, there is a required 10% deposit which must be paid with a check, money order, or in cash at the time you sign up for the share.  The remaining balance will be paid weekly or bi-weekly at distribution with your EBT card.
