About Fresh Access Bucks

facebook-iconFresh Access Bucks makes fresh, local produce more affordable and accessible to low income families while supporting Florida’s farmers and enhancing our local economies. It does so by increasing the purchasing power of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants by providing a one-to-one match for Florida grown fruits and vegetables. A SNAP cardholder who spends $10 of their SNAP benefits at a participating market receives an additional $10 to purchase fresh, local produce.

Fresh Access Bucks:

          Expands access to affordable, healthy foods

          Increases fruit and vegetable consumption

          Enhances local economies, market and farm viability

          Helps strengthen community
