The Healthy Incentives Program, or HIP, can help you buy more locally grown fruits and vegetables. When you buy fruits and vegetables with SNAP at our farmers market, you will earn extra money on your SNAP/EBT card. If you have questions about HIP that are not covered below, or need assistance in another language, call the Project Bread Food Access Hotline at 1-800-645-8333.
SNAP (formerly Food Stamp) dollars spent on eligible fruits and vegetables will earn HIP up to a maximum monthly benefit based on the size of your household. You must buy from participating farms to earn HIP – you can not earn HIP by shopping at a grocery store. You will need to spend SNAP on fruits and vegetables to earn HIP. The benefit is added directly back to your SNAP/EBT card and can be used towards any future SNAP eligible purchase.
Depending on the size of your household, you can earn up to an additional:
per month on top of your regular monthly benefits.
Debit your EBT card at the market table in exchange for tokens. Tokens can be used towards breads, meats, cheeses, jams, eggs, vegetables, and fruits.
