Ohio Direction Card EBT $50 of Food for $25

Support from foundations through Produce Perks gives Ohio Direction Card EBT customers an additional $25 to spend for fruits and vegetables for $25 withdrawn per visit to the Market. Ohio Direction Card users swipe their card through the electronic benefits transfer machine and receive tokens to be redeemed at any time for fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy, bread or meat from the market’s vendors. Customers who withdraw a lesser amount receive additional tokens for fruits and vegetables equal to the amount withdrawn. For EBT, go to the Ohio Direction Card window at the rear office at the market.

Shop With Your SNAP/EBT Card and get FREE Fruits and Vegetables

The Coit Road Farmers’ Market participates in the Produce Perks Program, which doubles the purchasing power of low-income shoppers – providing a $1 for $1 match for families and individuals receiving SNAP (formerly known as food stamps). The match can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables, stretching SNAP $ for additional healthy foods.

How It Works

1. Visit the market information window before you shop.

2. Swipe your Ohio Direction Card for tokens to spend at the market.

3. Double your dollars with up to $25 in Produce Perks tokens.

4. Use your SNAP/EBT tokens to buy SNAP eligible foods and Produce Perks tokens

to buy more fresh fruits and vegetables.

Produce Perks tokens may be used at any participating Produce Perks site. Visit

www.produceperks.org to find other sites near you.
