Fare for All offers food help


Fare for All Express, a discount food program of the Emergency Foodshelf Network, has become an essential supplement to the Working Partnerships Emergency Food Assistance program. If you or someone in your community needs food assistance, the staff of Working Partnerships strongly recommends participation in the Fare for All Express program

Fare for All Express works with community partners to offer quality, affordable grocery packages each month. The packages — normally $17 — contain a variety of healthy, fresh, quality food, including fruits, vegetables, frozen meats and staple items. The food sold by Fare for All Express is typically discounted anywhere from 40-50 percent off of retail prices

No income restrictions apply regarding who can participate in the Fare for All Express program and an unlimited number of packages may be purchased each month. No pre-payment or pre-registration is needed to participate in the Fare for All Express program. Simply visit the location closest to you on the monthly distribution day to purchase grocery packages

Fare for All accepts cash, check, EBT cards, credit and debit cards
