BONUS BUCKS

OUR CORNERSTONE ACCESS PROGRAM

Since 2008, the Bonus Bucks has increased the purchasing power for shoppers who utilize federal food benefits (SNAP, WIC, Senior FMNP) at our farmers markets. Receiving a weekly match offers individuals and families with limited food budgets the ability to take home twice as much fresh food. 

In 2015, we focused on building awareness of the Bonus Bucks program in our neighborhoods. As awareness increased, so too did redemption. More people learned about the financial support they could access at CFW farmers markets, which lead to record growth for the season.
