Food For All

Healthful Food for All Fund

Janice 1

The Healthful Food for All Fund, a project of the Center for Sustainable Living, believes all households should have access to sustainably grown, healthful food. To help make this possible the Healthful Food for All Fund has two programs to make food more available to low-income households: the Farm to Family Fund and the SNAP Matching Program.

Exciting news for the 2017-2018 season is the Farm to Family Fund has received a $10,000 challenge grant from a private family foundation with a two for one match! Every dollar we raise up to $5,000 will be matched with $2 from the foundation, which means we could have $15,000 to spend on local, healthful, sustainably raised food this year! Please consider becoming part of this program. You may use the Donate button on the right, or mail a check to HFAF, PO Box 503, Bloomington, IN 47402.

Farm to Family Fund

The Farm to Family Fund is designed both to make healthful, sustainably produced food more available to low-income households and to support our local, sustainable food system, especially our farmers who take the risk of producing food during the winter months. At the close of the winter farmers’ market each Saturday, we purchase produce, meat, and dairy that farmers wish to sell at half price. This food is donated to The Rise, the Community Kitchen, and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Matching Funds

P1060416

The SNAP Matching Program is designed to make the food available at the winter farmers’ market more affordable for SNAP cardholders.  Thanks again to an anonymous donor, we will match the SNAP benefit up to $18 per week.  The SNAP cardholder may withdraw funds from her/his card and receive tokens with which to purchase food at the market.
