Stretch your SNAP dollars!

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.

Locally Grown Guide

The 2017 edition of Locally Grown is now available! Our comprehensive annual guide is the premier resource to all things locally grown, raised, or processed in Lane County. Thank you to the farms, food businesses, community partners, and sponsors who make publication of our guide possible. And a big thanks to Lynne Fessenden for bringing another beautiful and informative edition to fruition.

Double Up Food Bucks

The 2017 season of Double Up Food Bucks is here. With Double Up, 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 is proud to partner 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 Willamette Farm and Food Coalition and is made possible by generous support from local funders.

Community support is essential to keep the Double Up Food Bucks program going. You can help us expand access to locally grown produce by donating today. Thank you!

The Bethel Farm (la Finca de Bethel)

From grantwriting to publicity and outreach, WFFC has helped the Bethel Farm go from vision to reality. Now in its second season, the Bethel Farm is gearing up to grow even more food for the community.

Thank you to the Whole Kids Foundation, Oregon Department of Education, and Ecotrust for supporting our work and that of our partners, the Bethel School District and School Garden Project.

Come see what’s happening at the farm on Saturday, June 10 from 12 pm – 4 pm at “Family & Neighbor Day.” The event is free and fun for all ages. All are welcome.

“Family & Neighbor Day” is the culminating event of WFFC’s year-long support of this exciting and innovative project. If you are interested in volunteering or learning more about the farm, please go to the Bethel Farm’s website or contact Jo Rodgers, WFFC’s Community Engagement Coordinator.
