Fare for All Express
Holy Trinity is a host site for Fare For All Express, a food shopping program that offers packages of fresh produce and frozen meat at about a 40% savings over local grocery stores. Utilizing the bulk purchasing power of the Emergency Foodshelf Network allows Fare for All to get produce and meat at a good value and pass the savings to everyone. There is no need to sign up or do anything in advance and all of the bulk packaged food is ready for purchase that very day. It makes no difference what your age or economic status, whether you live in the neighborhood or at a distance, the more who take advantage of this program the better the options and prices become. A young woman in her first teaching position says that Fare For All Express helps her stay within a tight budget each month. And two regular shoppers, father and son, purchase 4 mega meat and produce packs each month to feed four families. They appreciate that there is no limit to the number of items you may purchase each time. Fare For All strives to offer quality and nutritional food packages at an affordable price. Fare For All Express accepts cash, credit/debit cards, and EBT cards, but not checks.
