The Program

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?

 Farmers’ markets partner with social organizations in their community. These organizations help identify households experiencing food insecurity to participate in the program.

 

Participants are given an anonymous alternative currency—or “food bucks”—that can be redeemed at any vendor stall at their local farmers’ market. This currency is already in circulation at the market, so participants cannot be publicly identified.

 

Vendors exchange the “food bucks” with their market manager to receive payment for the products they sold, thereby increasing revenue for small, local businesses.
