City Fresh Free Shares Program

City Fresh, in partnership with ProducePerks Midwest, is pleased to offer the Free Shares program for the third consecutive year.

In 2024 we will be enrolling 91 eligible families for up to 16 weeks of free Family Shares, with a free home delivery option for those who face additional barriers. 

“I can’t even say how important these vegetables have been for us. It has really gotten us through some of the hardest financial times. It means so much to have good quality food when things are hard like that.”

“The free shares are invaluable to our family, and really really really really reduce financial stress, while truly increasing our nutritional intake. Having access to quality local food ought to be ubiquitous, but it is not, and I feel so fortunate to be able to be gifted the free shares. Thank you so much for all the work you do for food and social justice in our community, and to support local farmers.”
