Eating healthier on a budget has never been easier! Now, with Fresh Creds, your family can stretch your SNAP benefits ("food stamps") further when buying fruits and vegetables at community stores in your neighborhood.

Mandela MarketPlace is partnering with these stores so they have a wide variety of fresh, frozen, canned, and dried fruits and vegetables (including beans). When you're shopping, just tell the cashier that you're using Fresh Creds, and you'll receive an immediate bonus (currently 50%) when using your EBT card.

What does a 50% bonus mean? 

A 50% bonus means more bang for your buck: for every dollar you spend on fruits and vegetable, you get 50 cents worth bonus.
Fresh CredsIf you buy a bag of frozen berries using your EBT at participating locations, instead of costing $3.99, it will cost you only $2.66!
Rather than buying two tomatoes, you can get three!
