As a Double Up manager -- so many GusNIP and FINI projects are absolutely stumped by CSAs - this is amazingly innovative. Thank you!

I’m super excited to hear about your CSA and SNAP work! I work for a food shelf in MN and am always looking for innovative ways to support local farmers and those experiencing hunger!! Excited to hear more.

Re: SNAP retailer status - did Glywood receive authorization to accept SNAP payments directly, or did individual CSA operators become SNAP authorized?
Sara Cross

I am in Portland Or, at Oregon Food Bank and we just closed a pilot program to pay BIPOC and LGBTQ+farmers upfront to feed their communities - This is great to hear about other programs that are out that. Thank you for bring up the SNAP fund - we are trying to work through something like that. Thank you for doing this work!

Did you have any "oops" moments through this launch process? What was your favorite failure?
Jennifer Freeman
01:12:38
At Community FarmShare, a new program started in Maryland, we are getting donations from private donors to pay 7 participating farmers to provide CSAs to families facing food insecurity. We plan to offer it on a "pay as you can" model. Could you comment on some of the pros and cons of a pay as you can model for such a program? thank you.

Is the revolving loan like a Cooperative Economics model? so the farmers have to pay the fund back?
Bob Kell
01:28:21
How does money come back to the Revolving Load Fund? Isn’t it just a one-time subsidy? How is it sustaining except for new donations?
Lorrie Kessler

Yes! Another Anthropologist!
Megan Larmer
01:29:11
Yes Sara, that’s right. The SNAP dollars collected by the farms are returned to the fund at the end of the season.

For the purchase of farm grown products - at the end of the year when farms pay back into the revolving loan fund....do SNAP benefits cover 50% of the cost and GusNIP cover 25% with Glynwood fundraising the other 25%?
