Boston Bounty Bucks is a program for Boston residents who participate in the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) introduced by the City of Boston in 2008. The program provides participants access to fresh produce from local farmers and vendors at farmers markets across the city. This is a great way to encourage residents to make healthier food choices while supporting local farmers and vendors.

The program doubles the value of SNAP benefits by providing $20 vouchers for every $10 worth of purchases.
