The South Frankfort Food Share brings you healthy, locally produced, fresh food at an affordable price—as low as $6 for 10 different types of vegetables. We make this cooperative food-buying program work by pooling our money and effort as a community, purchasing vegetables directly from farmers, and working together to distribute vegetables to shareholders.
One Food Share includes 10 different kinds of vegetables, plus easy recipes so you can be sure all the food it gets eaten—even by picky eaters.
This is a one-time program this year, and the number of Food Shares is limited. Place your order by 5 pm on September 20 so we know how many vegetables to purchase from the farmers. On September 25, from 5 to 7 pm, come to the Second Street School parking lot (506 W Second Street, Frankfort) to pick up your Food Share.
The South Frankfort Food Share is working TOGETHER to make fresh veggies affordable for ALL.
Let us answer your questions:
How much does it cost?
The South Frankfort Food Share is available on a sliding scale, based on your income and family size. You decide and tell us where you are on the scale:
- $6 for folks purchasing a share with their SNAP/EBT cards
- $12 for anyone meeting the WIC eligibility scale **
- $25 for people with a higher income looking for a convenient way to get fresh, local food
- $40 for community members with additional resources looking for a great source of local food and an opportunity to support fresh, local food for all
This cooperative buying program ensures that everyone who purchases a Food Share receives the same amount and quality of food. Whether you spend $6 on your SNAP/EBT card or $40 for the retail price, you take home the same food. If you were to purchase each Food Share item separately at the farmers market, we estimate the total retail cost would be $35-$40.
** We use the WIC eligibility scale for all shareholders, regardless of whether you identify as female or whether you have children. If you meet the income requirements for WIC eligibility, you qualify for a $12 Food Share.

How much food do I get?
You can expect 10 different kinds of vegetables in your Food Share. We can’t say what kinds for sure—it depends on what’s growing in the farmers’ fields that day. Examples of vegetables you might receive include potatoes, tomatoes, corn, zucchini or summer squash, peppers, green beans, kale, lettuce, butternut squash, and a pumpkin.
With every vegetable, you will also take home easy recipes. When you pick up your Food Share, a chef will talk about fun and inexpensive ways to use these veggies, and you can taste samples, too!
How do I order?
A cooperative food-buying program works by pooling our money before the vegetables are delivered. We need to know how much food to get from our farmers, so you have to buy a share by 5 pm on September 20. Food Shares are limited, and they may run out before that time.
