Double Up Food Bucks

raddishes

Double Up Food Bucks doubles the purchasing power of SNAP benefits (food stamps), helping shoppers purchase healthy, farm fresh produce at participating farmers markets. Food bucks can be used to purchase fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, beans, cut herbs, edible plant starts, and nuts.

Double Up is a win-win-win: families bring home more healthy food, farmers make more money, and more food dollars stay in our local economy, strengthening our community and creating jobs.

Double your SNAP dollars!

Double Up Food Bucks is available at these farmers markets and farm stands in Lane County. Days, times, and locations are listed in our Locally Grown guide and are viewable here.

Thank you to Farmers Market Fund for providing technical assistance so that we can continue to offer this empowering program.

Long-term funding for Double Up remains a challenge. We would love to offer Double Up at all eligible farmers markets in Lane County for the entire market season and beyond. However, to sustain this program into the future, consistent funding at the state and local level is needed.

Wondering what you can do to help keep Double Up going? Whether you’re a Double Up shopper or simply believe that everyone should be able to afford farm fresh food, let your voice be heard. Contact your state legislator. Write a letter to the paper. Or make a contribution today. Thank you!
