Farm Fresh Rewards is a Good Shepherd Food Bank program designed to stretch budgets and improve access to fresh foods for thousands of enrolled Mainers.

Maine has the highest food insecurity rate in New England (10.4%) and the fifth highest rate of very low food insecurity (5.5%) in the country.

Farm Fresh Rewards combats food insecurity by increasing access to fresh produce for SNAP/EBT shoppers. Anyone using their SNAP/EBT card is eligible for a 50% point-of-purchase discount on a variety of eligible produce at participating retail stores.

These local retailers provide a vital access point for more Maine farmers to benefit from nutrition incentives. When more Mainers can buy more local food, everyone wins: families can make healthier choices, farmers and local food outlets gain new customers, and local economies thrive.
