Eligible members must currently receive SNAP benefits, have an Arkansas EBT card, and SNAP benefits must be available each month. If you would like to receive a CSA share and pay with your SNAP/EBT dollars, please commit to our CSA on our website at www.newsouthcoop.com by clicking the “sign up” button or call 501-615-8963. Select SNAP as your payment method.
We offer weekly produce boxes and add-on food items including bread, coffee, cheese, jelly, and meat to any and all SNAP members. Flowers are not available for SNAP purchase. All of our produce and add-on items come from local producers in our region. Each box contains 9 varieties of fresh produce from Certified Organic and Certified Naturally Grown farmers. The produce will change with the seasons. Add-ons are subject to availability.
All SNAP members may pay for up to two boxes at a time. In order to make a payment, we ask all members to bring their EBT card and present it to our staff at pick up. We process payments with a paper voucher system. At your pickup, we call EBT services to verify funds in your account and place those funds on hold for digital processing. The payment will be written on a paper voucher as receipt. All SNAP members are eligible for up to $20 of “Double Up Bucks” credit per pick-up day on fresh produce items only. Learn more about Double Up Bucks.
CSA membership requires a season-long commitment. SNAP members are liable for their CSA membership, regardless of EBT card status. You can send a family member or friend to pick up your share for you if you give us the name of the person in advance of your scheduled pickup time. We will verify the name and give your family member/friend the fresh box of produce. Note: Only card holders can sign the payment vouchers. Read our full CSA Policy.
Your membership with New South CSA is an important commitment that is helping to reshape how Arkansans get their daily dose of produce. Your involvement is keeping food dollars local and helps to support Arkansas family farms across our state.
