First, you have to become a member. Joining involves completing and signing the membership form at the above link and sending it with full payment by the due date to NYCCAH at the address on the form to secure a CSA share.
If you are purchasing a share with your Food Stamp/SNAP benefits, a 10% deposit payable by check/money order is required to secure your share. The remaining portion is paid weekly or bi-weekly during the season with your Food Stamp/SNAP Benefits at the distributions.
Membership means that you will come to the weekly CSA distribution site in Central Brooklyn each week for 22 weeks to pick up your share and fulfill your volunteer requirements. This is a requirement for all of our members. The CSA functions best when all members do their part!
Second, full payments are due before distribution begins unless you are paying as a low-income member. In the case that you are paying as a low-income member, you may pay for your share in installments as described above.The payments made before distribution begins help the farmer cover the farm costs early in the season.
Once your payment has been processed, we will contact you to confirm your membership in the CSA. To learn more about our CSA, download the above brochure.
