Double Up Food Bucks

Important info about the 2018 program coming soon.

Double Up Food Bucks doubles the purchasing power of SNAP or food stamp benefits, helping low-income shoppers purchase healthy, farm fresh produce at participating farmers markets.

Willamette Farm and Food Coalition (WFFC) connects consumers to local farmers, ranchers, and processors and the delicious foods they produce from the Willamette Valley’s fertile soils. We believe in the power of local food to create a strong, healthy, and resilient community. WFFC is a nonprofit organization based in Eugene, Oregon and serves all of Lane County. We invite you to join the fresh food movement.

As we compile our 2018 Locally Grown guide, farmers are sending us their CSA offerings for the 2018 season. We’ll post information here as we receive it from them, so you can view all of your delicious options in one place. Check back often!

Double Up Food Bucks

Check back soon for announcements about the 2018 season of Double Up!

With Double Up Food Bucks, shoppers using SNAP (or food stamp) benefits receive “food bucks” valued at $10 per market day. Food bucks can be used to purchase fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods. WFFC partnered with four markets this season to offer Double Up to low-income community members.

To “double up,” go to a participating farmers market, swipe your Oregon Trail Card, match up to $10 with food bucks, and shop for fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, beans, cut herbs, nuts, and edible plant starts. It’s that easy!

Double Up is a partnership among local farmers markets, Farmers Market Fund, and WFFC and is made possible by generous support from Trillium Community Health Plan and other local funders.

We are assessing program funding now and will soon announce the markets at which we’ll be able to offer Double Up this season. Community support is essential to keep the Double Up Food Bucks program going and reducing the economic barriers to healthy eating.

Help expand access to locally grown produce by donating today. Thank you!
