Farm Fresh Rewards and EBT Maine Pine Tree Card

Farm Fresh Rewards: DOUBLE Your SNAP Dollars

Support farmers AND save money. Get more healthy food and feed your family on a budget. Use the Pine Tree Card to help build your local community.

HOW IT WORKS

Tips for using the program: 

  • Buy more, get more: Get a $5 voucher for every $5 you spend on local food
  • Look for labels identifying local products
  • Vouchers are good for fresh, frozen, and dried local fruits and vegetables with no added sugars, salt, or fats
  • Earn and spend vouchers in $5 increments, so look for small local items (like garlic) to help you round up
  • Vouchers can be spent on your next purchase or saved up for when benefits run low
  • Note the expiration date on your vouchers
  • Spend vouchers at any participating store

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

WHAT WE HEAR ABOUT FARM FRESH REWARDS

“This program is on many levels a life-saver, in that I get to eat…good quality food, I get to support my local farmers and vendors, and in my mind all of that is a win-win. Overall the mental and physical health benefits and the opportunity to get more food is huge for me. It’s a big deal.” –Customer

“We really love that our local food co-op offers nutrition incentives. It is a win for our farm and fellow farmers in that more people are encouraged to buy local products and great for our community that folks can utilize these programs to support our local co-ops and small businesses, and fantastic that families get to see their benefits stretched further and are able to enjoy fresh local fruits and veggies grown in their communities.” –Farmer
