If you get SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits, you can get extra money for fresh fruits and vegetables. Every time you spend $5 of your SNAP benefits at a farmers market in NYC, you will get a $2 coupon that you can spend on fruits and vegetables.
Anyone who currently receives SNAP benefits is eligible.
You don’t need to apply to get Health Bucks if you get SNAP benefits.
- For every $5 you spend at farmers markets using SNAP on an EBT card, you can automatically get $2 in Health Bucks
- You may also get Health Bucks for taking part in certain workshops or demonstrations at farmers markets
