Fresh Access Bucks (FAB) is a statewide USDA Gus Schumacher COVID Relief and Response (GusCRR) funded nutrition incentive program that encourages SNAP shoppers to redeem their benefits on healthy produce at participating locations.
FAB’s retail program is focused 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 60 farm-direct outlets across the state, with the goal of ensuring food insecure individuals have access to affordable, fresh, locally-sourced produce in their community.

Fresh Access Bucks (FAB), an initiative of Feeding Florida, is a USDA-funded statewide nutrition incentive program that offers a deep discount on fresh produce when you shop with SNAP/EBT at participating outlets. FAB doubles your purchase! FAB matches $1 for $1 what a SNAP/EBT or P-EBT cardholder spends with FREE Fresh Access Bucks - up to $10, every time they shop. Customers can use their Fresh Access Bucks to pay for fresh produce the next time they shop.
Any items purchased with SNAP/EBT or P-EBT.
SNAP and P-EBT eligible items include: breads, cereals, fruits, vegetables, meats, fish and poultry, dairy products, other foods such as snack foods and non-alcoholic beverages, seeds and plants that produce food to eat.
SNAP and P-EBT benefits may not be spent on food products that contain alcohol or tobacco, items labeled for pet consumption, vitamins and supplements, and foods sold hot at the point-of-sale.
Fresh fruits and vegetables in their natural state with no added sugar, salt, or preservatives are eligible; precut fruits and vegetables are also permitted. Canned, dried, and frozen items, bagged salad kits with dressing, and fruit cups or juices with added sugar are not permitted. Self-service salad bar items are also not permitted.

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.
No, FAB retail incentives may only be used at the outlet from which you received them.

Customers can earn FAB with any state’s EBT card.
FAB is funded through the USDA’s Gus Schumacher COVID Relief and Response (GusCRR) for nutrition incentive projects. According to Federal guidelines, only SNAP/EBT and P-EBT recipients are eligible to participate. This is a federally funded program only available to SNAP/EBT and P-EBT shoppers to ensure they have the opportunity to use their benefits to purchase more fruits and vegetables.
