A Win For Families, Farmers, Local Economies

For millions of Americans, healthy food is out of reach. Fortunately, fruit and vegetable incentives are changing that. Incentive programs, like Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program (GusNIP formerly FINI) supported SNAP incentives and produce prescriptions projects, increase fruit and vegetable purchases and consumption among Americans with low income. They also support sales for farmers and keep dollars in local economies. The total reach of FINI/GusNIP from 2015-2021:

About Nutrition Incentives


The Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program (GusNIP formerly FINI) was established in the 2014 Farm Bill with strong bipartisan support. GusNIP provides funding opportunities for incentives projects to increase purchases of fruits and vegetables by households with low income.


SNAP incentives and produce prescriptions bring together parts of the food and healthcare system to improve the health and nutrition of households with low income, expand participation, and collect and aggregate data to identify best practices.
