How It Works

Using Fresh Bucks to make your SNAP dollars go further is easy!

Once you have received your monthly allocation on your Hoosier Works card, visit participating farmers’ markets or produce stands. Find the information booth. Tell them how much you plan to spend on SNAP eligible products, and then swipe your Hoosier Works EBT card. You will be given Fresh Bucks tokens worth double the value of up to $20 to be spent on fruits, vegetables, or other Fresh Bucks- eligible products.

Then, you get to shop and spend your tokens like cash on eligible items around the market! Look for the Fresh Bucks signage to find vendors selling eligible products. If you are unsure, ask a vendor if they can accept Fresh Bucks. Fresh Bucks can be used to buy items like produce, spices, and herbs. You will also receive market tokens that can be used to purchase eggs, meat, or other SNAP eligible products.
