Fresh 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 $40 of their SNAP benefits at a participating market receives an additional $40 to purchase fresh, local produce.
Markets: Fresh Access Bucks are currently used in 51 markets throughout the state.
Retail Space: Programs are currently being piloted to bring the Fresh Access Bucks program into the retail space. More information to come as the project launches in January 2019 in Riveria Beach, Palm Beach County, Florida.
