About Boston Bounty Bucks

Boston Bounty Bucks helps low-income people access nutritious local food. This innovative program enables SNAP (formerly food stamp) beneficiaries to double the value of their benefits at Boston farmers markets, helping low-income people afford healthy, local food. The Boston Bounty Bucks program, which began in 2007, was one of the first farmers market incentive programs in the country; participation in the program has increased 74-fold since the pilot year. In 2014, approximately $200,000 in Bounty Bucks were processed through Boston farmers markets, bringing fresh food to customers and profits to local growers.
