PRCHN publishes data from pilot test of local Produce Perks program

The Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods (PRCHN) produced a data brief documenting its findings from the supermarket pilot test of the Produce Perks program. This Ohio-based nutrition incentive program seeks to increase access to fresh and healthy food options for families who use Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Produce Perks matches the value of SNAP benefits when they are spent on fruits and vegetables.

This pilot was funded by the Ohio Department of Health and implemented by national nonprofit Wholesome Wave with support from the Ohio Grocers Association and the Ohio Nutrition Incentive Network, a multi-sector statewide coalition led by Produce Perks Midwest.
