Fresh bucks helps your SNAP dollars go further by doubling purchasing power, up to $20, on Indiana fresh fruits and vegetables.

Fresh Bucks Indy is a SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)-nutrition incentive program created to increase low-income families’ access and affordability to nutritious food. It works by matching SNAP dollars, up to $20 per day, to double up the amount of money that can be spend on purchasing fruits and vegetables at farmers’ markets.

Fresh Bucks was initially started by the Indy Hunger Network in 2013.  Made possible by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Marion County Public Health Department received funding in 2018 to work with stakeholders to continue securing funds and administering Fresh Bucks  throughout Marion County.
