Fresh Access Bucks (FAB) is a USDA funded statewide nutrition incentive program that encourages SNAP recipients to redeem their benefits at farmers markets, produce stands, CSAs and mobile markets to purchase healthy produce directly from Florida farmers.
At participating locations, FAB matches or discounts what a SNAP cardholder spends with FREE Fresh Access Bucks - up to $40, every day to spend on Florida- grown fruits & vegetables. Other than qualifying & receiving SNAP benefits, there is no need to sign up or do anything in advance.
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.
