Double Up Food Bucks Back This Summer
If your agency is based in Kent, Muskegon, or Ottawa County, and you distribute a client newsletter, consider including a piece like the following:
Attention, Bridge Card holders: Double Up Food Bucks will be back at your area’s farmers’ markets starting in June. When you use your Bridge Card at a participating farmers’ market, the Double Up Food Bucks program will match you dollar for dollar with bonus funds – up to $20 – that you can use in the market to buy more fresh, Michigan-grown fruits and vegetables. It’s that simple – spend up to $20 on your Bridge Card at the market, and you’ll get up to $20 more, free, to spend on healthy, local foods. Most farmers’ markets and some on-farm produce stands in Kent, Ottawa, and Muskegon Counties are participating. Visit www.doubleupfoodbucks.org or call toll-free 1-866-586-2796 for market locations and more information, or just visit your favorite market starting in June!
Double Up Food Bucks is a project of Fair Food Network, with local support from the Grand Rapids Community Foundation. www.fairfoodnetwork.org

We’re currently out of Double Up Food Bucks posters, but do have alternative posters at our Comstock Park warehouse about which farmers’ markets and farmers accept Bridge Cards.
