Fair Food Pricing

What is Fair Food Pricing?

Fair Food Pricing is a food subsidy program for low- and middle-income families that reduces the cost of local foods. Our motto is “Eat Local for Less.”

When you enroll, you receive a 30% discount to use at participating vendors who sell local foods.

If you are experiencing an emergency situation, you may qualify for a temporary 90% discount. All you need to do is explain your need during the enrollment process.

SNAP users are automatically eligible for Fair Food Pricing, but still must submit an enrollment form to participate in the program. Most Fair Food Pricing vendors also accept SNAP and provide a “Double Up Food Bucks” dollar-for-dollar match on SNAP purchases, for use on fruits and vegetables.

Signing up is easy!

Is my household eligible?

AdkAction uses United Way’s ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) income thresholds as a guide for Fair Food Pricing eligibility. ALICE households earn more than the Federal Poverty Level, but less than they need to afford a basic survival budget. Use the Household Income Eligibility Calculator below to see the income threshold that applies to your situation.
