We have great news! The Healthy Incentives Program has been reinstated until June 30th, 2018. Funding for the rest of the summer is still uncertain. Until June 30th, you may earn Healthy Incentives Program benefits at Farmers Markets that have already opened for the season (https://www.boston.gov/departments/food-access/farmers-markets-boston) or at the Fresh Truck, which is in Maverick Square from 3:00-6:00pm on Mondays. The Healthy Incentives Program reimburses SNAP customers for $40-80 per month on fruit and vegetable purchases at Farmers Markets, CSAs, and Mobile Markets. It began in April 2017 and was suspended April 2018 due to funding issues.
