Once a month, Open Arms is a site for community members to purchase food through Fare for All, a service that aims to make healthy food more accessible and affordable to all by offering monthly packages of discounted produce and proteins. They buy fresh fruits, vegetables, and frozen meat in bulk and pre-package them to save you up to 40% off grocery store prices.
The more people who participate in Fare For All, the more purchasing power the program has, so the service is open to everyone! Whether you’re a volunteer, client, supporter, or neighbor of Open Arms, you are welcome to save money by buying groceries through Fare For All.
How it works
Fare For All buys fresh produce and frozen meat in bulk from wholesalers and manufactures to find the best deals available. Volunteers at their warehouse pre-pack the produce and meat into food packages that range in price from $10–$25.
To purchase, simply come to Open Arms between 1–3 p.m. during one of the following Fridays. No need to register in advance! Fare For All accepts cash, credit, debit and EBT cards.
