Just Harvest is working to end hunger in Allegheny County, in part by expanding access to fresh, healthy food. The Fresh Access program also helps support our region’s small farms and the Pittsburgh area communities that host farmers markets.
Launched in 2013, the Fresh Access program enables shoppers to use their food stamps – as well as credit and debit cards – to buy fresh, nutritious, and locally-grown food. Fresh Access Food Bucks give food stamp shoppers an extra $2.00 to spend on fruits and veggies for every $5.00 they spend in food stamps at 22 participating farmers markets from May to November (dates vary by location).
Shoppers can swipe their ACCESS electronic benefit transfer (EBT) cards or their credit/debit cards and receive tokens they can use just like cash to purchase a variety of fresh produce, baked goods, meat, and dairy products. Tokens are accepted by dozens of vendors and the list is always growing.
