Food For All Program



Food for All is a program where participants receive a 10% discount on their co-op purchases (excluding beer, wine, gift cards, and co-op ownership). The Food for All program is open to everyone in the community, you do not need to be a River Valley Co-op owner to be eligible. To qualify you must have or present a current MassHealth card, SNAP card, Fuel Assistance Letter, WIC Card, proof of SSDI or a letter from the city about subsidized housing due to disability. Participants can also qualify if they have been referred to us by our local service organization partners due to food insecurity.

How to Apply

  1. Complete the FOOD FOR ALL application, available at our Northampton and Easthampton Customer Service Desks. Applications are also available at the Northampton Survival Center and Food Bank of Western MA.
  1. Bring one of the following for verification of your eligibility:
  • Up-to-date SNAP card

  • SSDI proof of benefits
  • Up-to-date SNAP MassHealth card
  • Fuel Assistance Letter
  1. Bring your application, proof of eligibility, and a photo ID to the Customer Service Desk at River Valley Co-op.

Applications are processed weekly. Once your application is accepted, a River Valley Co-op staff member will call you and ask you to stop by Customer Service to pick up your discount card. Show this card at the register when you make a purchase to receive your 10% discount. You will be eligible for the program discount through the end of June 2024. You will need to reapply each year to continue participation in the program.

Use of a discount card by anyone other than an approved individual will result in termination from the program.
