    Helpful Tips:

    • Save money by buying fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season.
    • Add leftover produce to casseroles or soups so food doesn’t go to waste.
    • Don’t overspend when shopping. Plan a menu and buy groceries accordingly.
    • Go home directly after shopping and store items in the refrigerator to keep produce crisp.
    • Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly with cold water for 1 minute or until all dirt and dust is removed before eating or cooking.
    • Want to grow your own herbs and vegetables? You can buy seeds and plants with your EBT card!
    • Bring some cash with you to the market. Vendors will not give you change for the vouchers, so you can stretch them further if you have a few bucks on hand.
