fresh creds

Fresh Creds is a discount program offered by the nonprofit Mandela Partners. It provides a  50% discount on California-grown fresh fruits and vegetables for customers that use CalFresh (EBT) at eligible locations.


How do I know what's eligible for the discount? 

The store's cashiers are given a list of what's currently sourced from California. These items may change seasonally. Also, look for the Fresh Creds logo throughout the produce section. The discount is capped at $10 per customer per day.

Why are you offering this program? 

  • To encourage the purchase and consumption of healthy, California-grown fresh fruits and vegetables in the communities we serve. 

  • It highlights our existing network of small local farmers of color. 

Fresh Creds can be redeemed at participating Healthy Grocery Initiative stores and on CSA boxes.
