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.
