Just as SNAP recipients can double the value of their food dollars, individuals and families who receive Medicaid and WIC can also receive free vegetables and fruits with their purchases at LEAP's Grandin Village Farmers Market, West End Farmers Market, Farm Share, and at all LEAP Mobile Market stops.

Market Bucks

There are times when federal aid doesn't reach every person lacking access to fresh food. Market Bucks allow LEAP to nourish more people in our community through partner organizations. To afford this support, we seek out grants, sponsorships, and individual donations. Click to learn more about how LEAP is strengthening our community's nutritional safety net.
