Produce Plus is funded by DC Health and administered by FRESHFARM. The goal of Produce Plus is to provide locally grown produce to DC residents with limited access to fresh, healthy food. The Produce Plus season runs from the beginning of June until the end of September.
How does Produce Plus work?
From early June through the end of September, participants get $40 per month to spend on local produce of their choosing at participating farmer’s markets and farm stands throughout Washington, D.C. These funds increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables while also generating meaningful income for local farmers, many of whom are also first generation farmers and BIPOC farmers.
