Program Costs

Here are examples of the specific program costs your contribution will make possible and the ways we wish to recognize your gift:

Your contribution today will help build the love and mutual support that’s growing at the Friendly R. Rice Community Farm Stand in Central East Austin.

  • Produce at $75 a month for the 5 spring months;
  • Good wages of $15 an hour for operations; and,
  • Cooperative management wages of $21 an hour.

We are delighted that our companeras — Blackshear parents who shop at the Friendly R. Rice Farm Stand — are also interested in working with us so that we have at least one fully fluent Spanish-speaker on staff.

To achieve the food justice we value, we must also prioritize overcoming obstacles to apply for the SNAP machine that will allow us to accept the Lone Star Card — so everyone can shop at the farm stand.

You can help us make that a reality.

Then consider pausing before the New Year to contribute to this awesome work.

Thank you. All the best!  Donna Hoffman
