The concept of a Fresh Stop is simple. Think of it as a cross between a fruit and vegetable flash mob and a family reunion. At our community-run Fresh Stops, shareholders order fresh produce that they pick up on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis. Fresh Stops often feature cooking demonstrations and activities that help neighborhoods unite around the pursuit of a healthy, just food system for all.
Our Fresh Stops are open to everyone and created, led, and sustained by community leaders. Most Fresh Stops reserve 75% of all shares for those individuals and families identifying as low-income according to the WIC eligibility guidelines. If your total family income is less than the amount listed in this table for your given number of family members, you are eligible for lower-cost shares:
All Fresh Stop operate on a sliding scale based on income. The scale is as follows:
Produce shares are ordered one to two weeks in advance and are full of the bounty of Kentuckiana's seasonal produce. Each share is accompanied by a newsletter with recipes and information from our farmers.
