GREAT NEWS! The Winter Farmers Market at Salina Field House is also a Double Up Food Bucks site!
See below for how it works:
The Double Up Food Bucks program began at five farmers markets in Detroit in 2009 and is now made available through local partners at farmers markets and grocery stores in 19 states, including Missouri, Kansas, and neighboring Illinois, Colorado, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
Double Up Food Bucks: A win for families, farmers & communities
The new Double Up Heartland Collaborative is aligning and scaling up successful healthy food incentive programs. Partners in this strong, two-state effort will serve more farmers and low-income families with the USDA Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive program. Over 1.1 million Kansas and Missouri residents rely on federal food assistance via the SNAP program. Double Up Food Bucks makes it easier for low-income families to eat fresh fruits and vegetables while supporting family farmers and growing local economies.
