The Produce Perks program works to increase accessibility, affordability, and consumption of healthful foods for vulnerable populations - while supporting regional farmers and sustaining local economies. Green Umbrella is the fiscal sponsor and fiscal agent for Produce Perks.
In 2016, eleven farmers' markets and one Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program in Greater Cincinnati participated in this program, which offers incentive dollars to customers utilizing the Ohio Direction Card, providing a dollar-for-dollar match (up to $10) which can be redeemed to purchase fruits, vegetables, seeds and edible plants. The program seeks to expand throughout the region, and has 18 participating food access locations planned for 2017.
