Farm Fresh Rewards

For every $10 spent on local food with SNAP/EBT, shoppers earn $5 in Farm Fresh Rewards.

With Farm Fresh Rewards, shoppers using SNAP/EBT earn bonus dollars to purchase Maine-grown fruit and vegetables at participating retailers throughout Maine.

 

“This program is on many levels a life-saver, in that I get to eat…good quality food, I get to support my local farmers and vendors, and in my mind, all of that is a win-win. Overall the mental and physical health benefits and the opportunity to get more food are huge for me. It’s a big deal.”

Helpful Tips for Using Farm Fresh Rewards

  • Buy more, get more: Get a $5 voucher for every $10 spent on local food with SNAP/EBT.
  • Use the map above to find participating locations, and look for in-store labels to find local food.
  • Vouchers can be used for fresh, frozen, and dried local fruits and vegetables that are grown in Maine and contain no added salt, sugars, or fats. Local, food-producing seeds and seedlings count too!
  • Each voucher is worth $5. You must spend the full $10 on local food w/ SNAP/EBT to earn one, and you must spend the full $5 on fruits and veggies to use one. Look for small local items (like garlic) to help round up.
  • Vouchers can be spent on your next purchase or saved for later in the season.
  • Remember to check the expiration dates on your vouchers – use them before it is too late!
  • Vouchers can be used at any store participating in the Farm Fresh Rewards program. You do not have to spend them at the stores where you earned them.
