What is the Good Food Bucks program?

Untitled design (4).png

City Green, Inc. administers the Good Food Bucks program to issue funding to grocery stores around New Jersey so they can provide nutrition incentives to customers shopping with SNAP. Nutrition incentives are a coupon or discount that SNAP shoppers receive when purchasing fresh fruits or vegetables at participating locations. We cover the cost for your grocery store to be able to provide discounts on fresh produce to SNAP shoppers!

There is no catch for participating in Good Food Bucks - we receive federal, state, and private foundation funding in order to administer this program.

Good Food Bucks is a win for everyone - it helps supports your grocery store, helps low-income shoppers afford healthy produce, and helps increase food security in New Jersey!

Grocery stores of all shapes and sizes are welcome to apply! Check out our interest form or read more below about the benefits of joining the Good Food Bucks program.

How the Good Food Bucks program works, per location:
