Food Packages now Available for Purchase on Sliding Scale

The general public can now order an evolved version of the Emergency Food Packages on The Hub on the Hill’s website. What was an Emergency Food Package has become a Farm Fresh Package, and they are available for purchase and even home-delivery in select areas in the Adirondacks.

 

To ensure that the food is accessible to anyone who needs it, regardless of income, AdkAction helped The Hub become an authorized a SNAP vendor, so they can now accept SNAP (also known as “Food Stamps”). Recognizing that local food is more expensive than conventional and commodity food, AdkAction has been working to leverage existing incentive programs, like Double Up Food Bucks, and created a new project called “Fair Food Pricing” which further subsidizes the cost of food purchased from local farmers, with the hope of adding more local food vendors in the future. 

So what’s in the bag? Watch this video to see what’s in a typical Farm Fresh Package:
