Double Up Food Bucks Will Stretch Your SNAP Dollars

3.20_DoubleBucks_blog.png

The Double Up Food Bucks program is a state, national, and Bluestem Health sponsored program to encourage a healthy diet and provide ample access to fresh, healthy foods.

Double Up Food Bucks allows SNAP participants to stretch their food dollars and buy more fruits and vegetables. When a SNAP customer pays for fresh fruits, vegetables, or herbs with their SNAP EBT card at Leon's Gourmet Grocery or Open Harvest Co-op, they will be given Double Up Food Bucks coupons for fresh produce FREE, up to $20 per day, to spend that day or on a future visit!
 
When a SNAP customer purchases SNAP tokens at any of our three farmers market locations, they will be given FREE Double Up Food Bucks vouchers to spend on fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs, up to $20 per market day.
 
Any SNAP customer automatically qualifies for the Double Up Food Bucks program, so you do not need to sign-up to qualify if you are already receiving SNAP.  Double Up Food Bucks coupons that are earned towards produce may be redeemed the same day that produce is purchased OR they can be saved for future use.
