    Boston Bounty Bucks Program

    The Boston Bounty Bucks program was launched in 2008. Boston Bounty Bucks started as a pilot program at a few markets with the goal of increasing produce access and supporting our local food economy. Since then, the program has expanded to 22 of Boston’s 30 farmers markets. During the 2013-14 season, $166,540 of combined SNAP benefits and Boston Bounty Bucks incentives were spent at farmers markets in Boston. All purchases made with SNAP benefits are matched up to $10.  In other words, Boston’s SNAP users (of whom there are more than 82,000) can get produce and other items at 50% off, up to $20 at farmers' markets. The program is financially supported by the BostonCANshare Campaign.
