Produce Prescriptions

Healthy Helping

Healthy Helping is available for a limited time for SNAP beneficiaries on Medicaid who receive care management services through Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC). Eligible participants can receive up to six $40 allotments for fruits and vegetables at Food Lion on their MVP card.

Healthy Helping participants must be on SNAP and can be enrolled for up to six months. Enrollment is limited due to funding.


Healthy Helping can be used to buy fresh, frozen, and canned fruits and vegetables without added sugar, salt, or fat.
