Would you like to get more of your groceries from local farms but can’t afford to? You may qualify for AdkAction’s Fair Food Pricing, a new program that offers 30% off local foods. 


Fair Food Pricing

What is Fair Food Pricing?

Fair Food Pricing is a food subsidy program for low- and middle-income families in Clinton, Franklin, Essex, and Hamilton Counties that reduces 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.

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?

You must be a permanent resident of Clinton, Franklin, Essex, or Hamilton county to participate, and meet the household income requirements outlined below.

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. You can use the Income Eligibility Calculator below to see if your household may qualify before beginning the application.
