Just in time for the holidays! Department of Health is pleased to announce Complete Eats is relaunching in December, thanks to a generous grant from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation.
Where: Complete Eats will be available at all Safeway stores in Washington except stores located in Seattle. Safeway stores in Seattle have a similar program funded through the Sweetened Beverage Tax.
How it works: SNAP shoppers who buy at least $10 worth of qualifying fruits and vegetables using their SNAP food benefits and their Safeway Club Card will get a coupon for $5 off their next purchase. Shoppers can choose from fresh, canned and frozen fruits and vegetables, so long as the products have no added fats, sugars or salt. Look for the green Complete Eats logo on shelf tags for eligible canned and frozen products.
When: Soon! Complete Eats will relaunch by December 5th.
How long will the program last? The grant will fund up to $1 million of Complete Eats coupons, which will allow the program to run for up to 7 months (through June 2019). DOH continues to look for funds to extend programming.
