The City of Boston is encouraging people on food stamps to "buy local" by doubling the purchasing power of their food stamps
at 14 farmers' markets in the city. (Boston has a total of 22 farmers' markets that run through the summer.)
When food stamp recipients swipe their benefit cards on portable credit card readers at the participating farmers' markets, they will receive up to $20 in vouchers — called Boston's Bounty Bucks — by spending $10 worth of food stamps.

If you think this is a good idea like I do, don't read the comments. The idiots will only piss you off.
