HIP Program

Using HIP Benefits at Farmer Dave’s

What is the HIP Program?

The Healthy Incentives Program (HIP) is a statewide program. If you spend your SNAP dollars at a participating retailer, you can earn extra benefits (up to $40/month for a household of 1-2 people, $60/month for a household of 3-5 people, and $80/month for a household of 6+ people).

You can also use SNAP benefits to sign up for our CSA program, which is a subscription of weekly boxes of produce. Contact farm@farmerdaves.net or call (978) 349-1952 for a registration form. For SNAP customers, we set up a monthly payment plan to cover the cost of the CSA (rather than having you pay for the entire season up front).

 

Under the HIP program, you are eligible for either $40, $60, or $80 per month reimbursed when you pay for your share(s) via your SNAP benefits. The reimbursement amount is $40/month for a household of 1-2, $60/month for a household of 3-5, and $80/month for a household of 6 or more. Both the payment and the reimbursement would automatically come from your SNAP account monthly, on the same day of the month that your benefits are loaded.

If you have questions about HIP, please contact Project Bread’s FoodSource Hotline: 1-800-377-7884
