Food Coupon Program

FoodCouponMontageThe Food Coupon Program is an American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funded food assistance program implemented by BDPH. Residents are provided coupon books to purchase food products at the Brookline Farmers’ Market during the 2022 season. Individuals or households of two will receive $50 in coupons; households of 3 or more receive $100 in coupons to spend with participating vendors at the Brookline Farmers’ Market.
