5 for 5 Program

At select Healthy Corners stores, DC Central Kitchen is offering a “5 for 5” coupon program for SNAP/EBT customers. At select corner stores, customers receive a $5 coupon for free fruits and vegetables every time they spend $5+ using their SNAP/EBT card.

 

Healthy Corners is a DC Central Kitchen program that provides fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy snacks to corner stores near you. Healthy Corners makes healthy eating more affordable and convenient for everyone.
