Stretch your SNAP/EBT dollars with Double Up Food Bucks.
Get more fresh fruits and vegetables when you spend your SNAP/EBT dollars on locally grown produce at the French Broad Food Co-Op or the West Village Market & Deli. It’s easy with Double Up Food Bucks! For example, if you spend $10 with your SNAP/EBT card on local produce in one of the participating stores, we’ll match you another $10 to spend on any fresh produce in our store, up to $20 matching per customer per day! Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) matching dollars can be spent that same day or saved up for a different day for up to one year! Please a see store employee for more details and to sign up for the Double Up Food Bucks program.

Background of the DUFB Program: Valuing Community Health and Prosperity
The Fair Food Network developed the Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) program in Detroit Michigan in 2009, and after expanding the program to farmers’ markets, cornerstores, grocery stores, and CSAs in 20 states has demonstrated results across the board: low-income shoppers access and eat more healthy food, local farmers gain new customers and sell more produce, and more food dollars stay in the local economy.

Thank you Mission Community Investment and the Community Foundation of WNC for making this possible!
