The More You Know

Spotlight on the Community – FARE FOR ALL.

Fare For All is a fantastic way to save money on quality, nutritious food. They buy fresh fruits, vegetables, and frozen meat in bulk to save you up to 40% off typical grocery prices. They select the best food from their shipments, pre-packaging it to give you the best deals. Fare For All is community supported and open to everyone- there are no qualifications to participateThey follow a co-op model, so the more people who shop, the better the value becomes for everyone.

Type of Packages?

  • $10 Produce Packs
  • $11 Mini Meat Packs
  • $20 Combo Packs

Due to COVID19 Fare fr All is running a limited number of sales with a drive through sale model. This model is safer for the community and their team. Sales are outdoors, streamlined and low contact. This eliminates the needs for carts and allows you to remain in your vehicle! Unfortunately the normal locations had to change and the new locations have been carefully selected to meet food access needs in a regional manner. This new schedule will be in effect until September at the earliest. They have also temporarily switched to a “Cards Only” payment process (credit, debit or EBT) – Yes they take EBT! This makes the drive through process smoother and more efficient.
