2018 Program Plus Program applications available through March 23rd

      Posted On: March 12, 2018

“Produce Plus began in 2013 as a locally-funded nutrition incentive program for farmers’ markets administered by the DC Department of Health with the express goal of increasing the consumption of healthful, locally grown produce by low resource residents. This is accomplished by offering incentives and ensuring greater access to farmers’ markets for low resource DC residents.

Produce Plus provides access to fresh produce for low-income DC residents who receive Medicaid, Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries (Medicare QMB), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Senior Grocery Plus, or SSI Disability. Eligible DC residents are able to get $10 two times per week to spend on fresh produce.”

Market managers- the 2018 Produce Plus Program applications are open till March 23rd. Once complete, you status will be presented by April 6th, 2018.
