Get Health Bucks!
There are a few ways for you to get Health Bucks to use on fresh fruits and vegetables at our farmers’ markets:

1. Shop at a farmers’ market using your EBT card – for every $5 you spend using EBT, you’ll receive a $2 Health Buck!
Find out which markets accept EBT. Most do! And those that don’t are noted on our map.
Visit the market information tent and look for the market manager .
Tell the market manager how much you plan to spend using your SNAP benefits.
Swipe your EBT card to purchase as many wooden tokens as you’ll need (most markets use tokens for EBT, credit or debit purchases). These tokens act like cash at the market, can be spent at the farmers’ tables and never expire. (Remember: you will receive one $2 Health Buck for every $5 you spend in EBT.)



2. Participate in an activity at a community-based organization that distributes Health Bucks.
3. Attend a free nutrition and cooking demonstration or food workshop for kids. You’ll also receive free tastings, as well as nutrition and recipe handouts in addition to the Health Buck.
Look for the carrot and apple icons on our map to find participating markets.

Redeem your Health Bucks (at any market)!
1. Go to your local farmers’ market.
2. Find items that you would like to purchase.
3. Give the farmer your $2 Health Buck as payment for your fresh fruits and vegetables!

For this first time this season, NYC Health has detected West Nile Virus in New York City mosquitoes from areas in Queens and Staten Island. No human cases have been reported this season.
New Yorkers are urged to take precautions to prevent exposure to mosquito bites. Some helpful tips:
Use an approved insect repellent containing picaridin, DEET, oil of lemon eucalyptus (not for children under three), or products that contain the active ingredient IR3535.
Make sure windows have screens and repair or replace screens that have tears or holes.
Eliminate any standing water from your property and dispose of containers that can collect water. Standing water is a violation of the New York City Health Code.
Make sure roof gutters are clean and draining properly.
Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas and hot tubs. Keep them empty or covered if not in use; drain water that collects in pool covers.
Report standing water by calling 311 or visiting here.






The Health Department will also apply larvicide by helicopter to marsh and other non-residential areas of Staten Island, the Bronx and Queens on select days July 17-21.
