Another way to eat fresh! Health Bucks are here!
Developed and distributed by the NYC Health Department, Health Bucks are $2 vouchers to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables at local farmers markets.
SNAP recipients can get greater purchasing power by using their EBT card at participating farmers markets. For every $5 swiped off of a person’s EBT, he or she will receive a $2 Health Bucks. That means, spend $5 but get $7, spend $10 but get $14!
Community organizations can also apply to receive Health Bucks to distribute to their clients and families. Click here to download the Health Bucks application. After the applications are reviewed, Health Bucks are distributed on a “first come, first serve” basis while supplies last.
