How it Works

We help families buy fresh, healthy food from local farmers. This is a simple yet powerful idea with vast opportunity for impact. Produce Perks doubles the purchasing power for low-income shoppers – providing a $1 for $1 match for families and individuals receiving SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) when spent on healthy foods. Our match can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables, stretching the SNAP $ for additional healthy foods.

The Produce Perks program increases affordability and accessibility to healthful foods for low-income populations.

Furthermore, the program supports local economies and will seek to expand throughout the county and across the state in the future.
