~Fresh Access Bucks accepting applications for the FABulous Network~
Attention Florida farmers and farmers markets!
Interested in expanding your customer base and sales?
Fresh Access Bucks (FAB) is currently seeking applications to add more farmers and markets to the FABulous network. FAB is designed to encourage Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) recipients to redeem their benefits at farmers markets and CSAs to purchase fresh, healthy foods directly from Florida farmers.
At participating outlets, FOG matches what a SNAP cardholder spends with FREE Fresh Access Bucks – up to $20, every market day. Customers can use them right away or later on to buy Florida grown fruits and vegetables. Priority will be given to farmers and markets that already have EBT, that are located in and around low income areas and along transportation routes.
