This program is only available to people who receive their EBT benefits from the state of Georgia. You have to visit a participating market or farm on the designated event date. When you do, you’ll be able to get 50% off your local fruit and vegetable plant starts and seedlings.

To get the free gardening kit, you will need to purchase at least three plant starts with your benefits. The kit will include pots, soil, gloves, trowels and plant care guides to help you get greater success from your garden.

This program began in April 2020 and is run by Wholesome Wave Georgia and Food Well Alliance. Events have been held at farms across the Atlanta Metro Area. You’ll need to follow Wholesome Wave Georgia for updates on the next event.

Georgia Fresh for Less provides a dollar-for-dollar match program at participating farmers markets. That means that for every dollar you spend with SNAP benefits, you’ll receive an extra dollar that can be used to purchase healthy locally-grown fruits and vegetables.

If you spend $5, you’ll be able to buy $10 worth of food. if you spend $10, you’ll be able to buy $20. Since there’s a $10 maximum, you’ll only be able to get up to $10 in free food even if you spend more than $10 with your SNAP card.

There are Fresh for Less markets all around the state of Georgia.
