Get Involved

Why do I get two different kinds of currencies?

SNAP is a federal program and requires a “scrip” (tokens) to be used to track distribution and redemption of SNAP dollars at farmers markets. Fresh Bucks utilizes different funding, therefore requiring its own “scrip” (Fresh Bucks card) to reimburse participating vendors who accept the card.



Fresh Bucks and Produce Rx is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) Program and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program. The Marion County Public Health Department, Chronic Disease Department is the central administrator of Fresh Bucks and Produce Rx throughout Marion County.
