GLENS FALLS — Glens Falls Farmers’ Market announced they have been awarded $20,000 in Double Up Food Bucks from Field & Fork Network’s Double Up NY for the 2021 Market Season from July 1 to Oct. 31. This program doubles the value of federal nutrition assistance dollars spent at the market, helping people bring home more locally grown fruits and vegetables.
The wins are three-fold: low-income consumers eat more healthy foods, local farmers gain new customers and make more money, and more food dollars stay in the local economy.
Steps for using Double Up Food Bucks: Go to the Market before or after you shop to sign up for the program. Staff is trained to help; Swipe your EBT/SNAP benefits card to pay for your purchases; Match your EBT dollars $1 for $1 with your Double Up Food Bucks Loyalty Card. (Qualifying items may vary); Shop for fresh produce with your Double Up Food Bucks.
