Produce Perks/ SNAP
Produce Perks is Ohio's nutrition incentive program. It empowers SNAP recipients to purchase fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables from Ohio farmers' markets across the state.
The program provides a dollar-for-dollar match for shoppers using SNAP/EBT to buy fresh produce.
Wholesome Rx: Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program
Forty million Americans struggle to put healthy food on the table. Unfortunately, the cheapest food choices cause diet-related disease. As a result, the US spends over $1 trillion a year on diet-related illness. But when healthy food is affordable, people buy it - and everything changes. That’s why we’ve brought nutrition incentives into the healthcare space - by empowering doctors to prescribe produce to the people who need it most, from seniors in Navajo Nation to mothers & children in Los Angeles.

Forget your cash before coming to the market?
