How does Fresh Bucks work at grocery stores?

When you use your Hoosier Works/EBT card, Fresh Bucks will match your fresh fruit and vegetable purchase, up to $10 per day. For every $1 you spend on fresh fruits and vegetables, you will earn $1 of Fresh Bucks. You will receive a Fresh Bucks card when you sign-up with a cashier for the first time (if you already received a card at a farmers market or farm stand, you do not have to sign up again, your cards are already synced). Funds are loaded on a Fresh Bucks card that you can turn around and use to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables. This card is reloadable and you can earn once a day, so always bring it with you to the stores!
