Virginia Fresh Match provides free fruits and vegetables when you shop at participating markets with your SNAP or P-EBT food benefits! This program operates at over 100 partner locations around the state, giving you convenient access to free food wherever you are!
In this article, we’re going to discuss what this program is, how it works, who is eligible and what you need to do to get free food when you shop with food benefits in Virginia.
What is Virginia Fresh Match?
Virginia Fresh Match is a nutrition incentive program that helps low income residents get free locally grown produce when they spend their food benefits at participating markets.
It’s a dollar matching program, so the amount of free food you receive from this program will depend on how much you spend at the market. Basically, you’ll get a 50% discount on any eligible products that you buy.
Who is eligible for Virginia Fresh Match?
Virginia Fresh Match is available to anyone who shops with SNAP food benefits at a participating market. The participating markets are listed below.
There are no additional eligibility requirements. In fact, if you’re eligible for this program, then you’re also eligible for these Virginia EBT discounts!
How does it work?
You do not have to apply in advance. Just go to your local market to get started!
First, you have to find a farmers market that participates in Virginia Fresh Match. We have a list below.
Second, you have to pay with your SNAP EBT benefits. Some vendors may accept EBT at checkout but most markets will require you to go the market manager booth to exchange your EBT benefits for tokens.
Third, enjoy your benefits! You’ll either receive a 50% discount at the time of sale or an in-market currency that can be used to buy extra fruits and vegetables. It depends on how that market has decided to handle those benefits.
