SNAP (food stamps) recipients can receive healthy foods through various nutrition programs.

Get the Good Stuff is a program at certain NYC supermarkets. For every dollar you spend using SNAP on eligible fruits, vegetables, and beans, you get a dollar for your next purchase of eligible foods.

Eligible foods include:

  • Fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs
  • Frozen fruits, vegetables, and beans without added sugar, salt, or fat
  • Canned and jarred fruits, vegetables, beans, and lentils without added sugar, salt, or fat
  • Dried beans, lentils, fruits and vegetables without added sugar, salt, or fat

Health Bucks are $2 coupons you can use to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at all NYC farmers markets.

SNAP Recipients

If you receive SNAP, you can get Health Bucks. For every $2 spent at farmers markets using SNAP benefits on an EBT card, you can get $2 in Health Bucks. You can get up to $10 per day.

Health Bucks are available year-round at NYC farmers markets that accept EBT.

Community and Faith-Based Organizations

Organizations can receive free Health Bucks to distribute to community members as an incentive to participate in nutrition education and other health-related activities.

The 2024 application for free Health Bucks will be available in Spring 2024.

For questions, or if an organization would like to purchase Health Bucks coupons, email farmersmarkets@health.nyc.gov for more information.

If you receive SNAP, you can get pre-assembled boxes of fresh produce for half the price.

Each box typically has 6 to 10 items of fresh, locally grown, high-quality produce. You must order your box one week in advance.

How it works:

  1. Preorder your box one week in advance at a participating site. At some sites, you can order online.
  2. Pay with your EBT card and get half off the purchase price.
  3. Pick up your box from the site the following week.

Participating sites:

  • Children's Aid Society Go! Healthy Food Box
  • Corbin Hill Food Project
  • Mary Mitchell Youth and Family Center
  • The Campaign Against Hunger
