NIFA’s Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) program supports projects that increase the purchase of fruits and vegetables among participants of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by providing incentives at the point of purchase. In Savannah, Georgia, Farm Truck 912 offers a food education and outreach program and health screenings provided by Mercer University School of Medicine. A Chester County, Pennsylvania, Fresh2You Food Truck offers valuable financial incentives to customers shopping with SNAP benefits and enhances their knowledge of how to choose, prepare, and store produce.
