The Pharmacy to Farm Prescriptions program provides New Yorkers who receive SNAP benefits, also known as food stamps, and have high blood pressure with $30 in Health Bucks each month.

Patients filling a prescription for high blood pressure medication at select pharmacies receive a fruit and vegetable “prescription” that can be exchanged at a nearby farmers market for Health Bucks.  

Health Bucks are $2 coupons that can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at all NYC farmers markets.  

For more information or questions about the program, please email farmersmarkets@health.nyc.gov.

You can get a list of participating pharmacies online.
