Double Up Food Bucks

Double Up Food Bucks is a SNAP (food stamps) matching program providing dollar-for-dollar matching at regional farmers’ markets. Douglas County has partnered with organizations across Kansas and Missouri to expand healthy food access in our states.

​​​​We’ll double your dollars for buying fruits and vegetables with your SNAP (food stamps/EBT) card.

We’ll match every $1 you spend at participating farmers markets and grocery stores in Kansas and Missouri with another $1 FREE so you can buy more fruits and vegetables, up to $25 more per day.

The way Double Up Food Bucks works at farmers markets is different than at grocery stores. Learn how below.

 

Double Up Food Bucks is available at participating farmers markets and grocery stores in Kansas and Missouri.  To find a location nearest you:  http://www.doubleupheartland.org/locations/
