What folks are saying about Good Food Bucks!
"The Good Food Bucks program has expanded our Farmers Market tremendously. It shows that shopping for fresh, local and healthy produce is accessible to everyone in our community. We have seen families benefit from our program and continue to come back weekly because this is one of the best ways to spend their money."
Manager at Riverview Farmers Market, Jersey City
"This program means a lot to me and my family. I want my kids to grow up eating healthy. It isn’t easy for us to buy fresh foods all the time. We never shopped at a farmers market before this year. At first it was very different for us but we really love coming here now. We’re thankful for the program and all the fresh foods we can have
at home now."
