Sliding Scale Pricing
Our Price scaling system is necessary because our current food system leaves 1/5 of San Diego's residents without food. This pricing system incorporates an innovative idea with an innovative way to solve the social issues of hunger and dietary disease as well as incorporate innovation into solving environmental issues derived from large-scale agriculture.
Membership levels #1 and #2 (Local Food Lover/Grower) are not paying members due to their respective levels of food-insecurity. Our private payment system means none of your neighbors or our employees know exactly how much you pay/don't pay, so there is never any unwanted attention from receiving free food.
"Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom." - Nelson Mandela
