❤️ Red Heart Emoji — Meaning In Texting, Copy & Paste 📚 Nourish Your Neighbor Share:

  • This share is a donation to offset the cost of a Farm Share for a family who would otherwise not be able to afford one. We offer shares at half price for qualifying low-income families. SNAP, Medicaid, and WIC recipients, and families with children in Head Start or CHIP all qualify. Our goal is to raise $2500 to fund the equivalent of eight Medley Shares at half price. This donation is tax-deductible. Every little bit helps! Thank you!
