Double Down on Local, Fresh Produce with the Double Up Food Bucks Program!

The Double Up Food Bucks program is part of a nation-wide initiative to help low-income people using the SNAP benefit to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables.

Anyone currently participating the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and holding an EBT card is automatically eligible for the Double Up program.

At a participating grocery store, whenever an eligible person purchases fresh produce, they will earn $1 in Double Up Food Bucks for every dollar spent, up to $20 per day.

At a participating farmer’s market, the eligible person simply swipes their EBT card at the manager’s booth for SNAP tokens, and will earn Double Up Food Bucks at the same time.

These four Lincoln locations are currently participating:
• Old Cheney Road Farmers Market, 55th and Old Cheney Road
• Fallbrook Farmers Market, 570 Fallbrook Blvd
• Community Crops Veggie Van, 2301 O St
• Leon’s Gourmet Grocer, 2200 Winthrop Rd

The current phase of this program will last until May 31, 2018.
