Double Up Food Bucks at Kansas farmers markets
Posted On: April 12, 2018
“The Downtown Topeka Farmers Market along with others in northeast Kansas will participate in the Double Up Food Bucks program, a healthy food incentive program that helps low-income families eat more healthy food and supports local farmers.
The farmers market, located at S.W. 12th and Harrison, opens Saturday, April 14.
SNAP participants who shop at a participating farmers market swipe their EBT cards to get SNAP tokens to use for their purchases. For the first $25 of SNAP tokens they purchase, they will receive a matching amount of Double Up Food Bucks tokens that can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables. The limit is $25 per day.
Double Up Food Bucks is also offered at the Lawrence Farmers Market, the Cottin’s Hardware Farmers Market, the Farmers Market at Geary Community Hospital, the Downtown Manhattan Farmers Market, the Emporia Farmers Market and several other locations across Kansas and Missouri.
