Georgia Plant 2 Plate sales will take place at four sites in Atlanta this month and in May.
Only Georgians on SNAP benefits are eligible to participate - even though the plant sales are open to all.
Sponsors include Wholesome Wave Georgia, Food Well Alliance and Love Is Love Farm.
Families with EBT/SNAP benefits will get 50% off seedlings and free gardening kits.
Each kit will include containers, gloves, a trowel, plant guides and soil - all things necessary to get on the right track to growing foods at home.
