DA BUX

DA BUX is an incentive program for SNAP-EBT cardholders to buy more Hawai`i Island grown produce. DA BUX stretches EBT food dollars, as well as supports farmers on our island.

The DA BUX program works by matching EBT dollars spent on Hawai`i Island grown produce with additional free produce. For example, if you buy $10 of Hawai`i Island grown produce with your EBT card, DA BUX gives you another $10 of Hawai`i Island grown produce for free.

  • Sophie Russell Testamentary Trust;
