Fresh Access Bucks (FAB) is a statewide USDA Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive Program (FINIP) funded nutrition incentive program that encourages SNAP shoppers to redeem their benefits on healthy produce at participating locations.
FAB’s retail program is a three-year pilot with a focus on small, regional, or independent grocery, co-op, convenience, or corner stores to offer Fresh Access Bucks on fresh produce. The retail program is an expansion of an initiative that is currently offered in over 50 farmers market outlets across the state, with the goal of ensuring food insecure individuals have access to affordable, fresh, locally-sourced produce in their community.

Q: What is the difference between FAB’s retail program and FAB at other brick-and-mortar outlets?
A: FAB’s retail pilot is specifically focused on small, regional, or independent grocery, co-op, convenience, or corner stores. The goal of the retail program is to provide better access to SNAP shoppers who already struggle with transportation issues by collaborating with established community retailers. We endeavor to meet people where they are and help extend their SNAP benefits toward fresh fruits and veggies.
Q: How do I find a retailer near me that accepts FAB?
A: Visit our map to find retail or farmers market outlets near you.
Q: Why is the match limited to $10 per transaction at retail outlets?
A: Typically at retail grocery outlets, customers shop more often and purchase less produce in a single shopping visit. The retail program allows customers to earn as many times as they’d like each day, but limits the match per transaction to make the shopping experience quick and convenient.
Q: Can I use my Fresh Access Bucks tokens at FAB retail outlets?
A: No, FAB retail incentives may only be used at the outlet from which you received them.
