Food Access Programs

What are our Food Access Programs?

Feather River Foods has created TWO programs that help eligible, low-income Member-Owners receive a 10% discount on groceries, active for a 6-month period.  This discount applies at both our Co-op locations; Quincy and Portola. We believe that healthy food should be available to everyone. Eat fresh, and enjoy!

The Co-op developed our Affordable Food Program (AFP) and College Student Food Access Program(CSFAP) to support broader access to fresh and healthy foods in our community.   Qualifying is easy and open to all members. The premise is simple: Everyone deserves to eat healthy food, regardless of income.

Do I Qualify?

AFP: Co-op Member-Owners participating in SNAP (Calfresh/food stamp benefits) are eligible to apply for the AFP discount.  Details are included in the AFP application.  

CSFAP: Co-op Member-Owners who are 18+ and have a valid student ID card are eligible to apply for the CSFAP discount.  Details are included in the CSFAP application.  

How Do I Sign Up?

Members in good standing* (either paid in full or current on equity payments) may submit an AFP or CSFAP application for review.  Once approved, benefits of a 10% discount, good for a period of six months will be added to your member number account.  Any member receiving AFP or CSFAP has the option to apply for renewal and will be continued in the program, as long as they still qualify.

*Co-op membership is $20 per person/annually until $300 is reached.

  • The discount is valid in both stores and is tied to your membership(Pink Card)—you don’t carry a different, special card or show anything to your cashier, except Pink card, after you’ve signed up. 
  • Must have Pink Membership card present to receive a discount on each shopping trip.
  • Renewing is as easy as signing up, one simple form! Simply stop by the register, show your qualifying card to a Cashier and ask for the AFP form.
  • Sorry, no retroactive discounts if the discount expires or during waiting periods.
  • Stronger Together!
