Produce Plus is funded by DC Health and administered by FRESHFARM. Produce Plus provides locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables to Washington, DC residents with limited access to fresh, healthy food.

***Due to unprecedented demand, the 2024 Produce Plus program is now only able to accept submissions for the waitlist.***

Unfortunately, there are a limited number of spots in the program, which is based on the annual amount of funding received from DC. If you are still interested in Produce Plus, please fill out the form so that your information can be added to the waitlist, but also so that FRESHFARM can better understand the true demand for the Produce Plus program to aid in future advocacy efforts.

How Does Produce Plus Work?

From early June through the end of November, program participants get $40/month to spend on local fruits and vegetables of their choosing at select farmers markets and farm stands throughout Washington, DC.

These funds increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables while simultaneously generating meaningful income for local farmers, many of whom are also first-generation farmers and BIPOC farmers.

Produce Plus is DC Health’s city-wide produce incentive program. Mayor Muriel Bowser invests more than $1 million annually in this program to increase access to fresh produce and strengthen local farmers markets.
