The Massachusetts Healthy Incentives Program (HIP)

The MetroWest Food Collaborative supports the Healthy Incentives Program and “An Act Relative to an Agricultural Healthy Incentives Program” (S.108/ H.250). The Massachusetts Food System Collaborative, has led the Campaign for HIP Funding for five years. HIP leverages federal SNAP funds by incentivizing SNAP recipients’ purchases of fresh fruits and vegetables directly from farmers, improving health outcomes for vulnerable communities and increasing sales for local farms. This bill will establish the framework for the program’s long-term sustainability.
