Call for Applications: Utah Double Up Food Bucks

SNAP-authorized farmers markets and farm stands in Utah are now invited to apply
to participate in the 2018 Utah Double Up Food Bucks season, expected to run from
June 1 -October 31.*
Application period:​ March 1 through March 31, 2018

Utah Double Up Food Bucks is an innovative healthy food SNAP incentive program
that helps low-income residents take home more fresh, locally-grown fruits and
vegetables. The program works by matching Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
benefits (SNAP, formerly “food stamps”), dollar-for-dollar, up to ten dollars per market day at
participating farmers markets and farm stands across the state of Utah. The matched benefits,
called Double Up Food Bucks, can be used to purchase fresh, locally-grown produce. In addition
to increasing access to healthy food, small farmers gain new customers and more income, and
more food dollars stay in the local economy. In short, the program is a win-win- win. Last year,
Double Up Food Bucks was offered at twenty-five farmers markets and farm stands in eleven
counties across the state.

New Management
Utah Double Up Food Bucks is now managed by Urban Food Connections of Utah and the Utah
Department of Health, with support from Utahns Against Hunger. The program is part of the
larger Utah Produce Incentive Collaborative.

How to Apply
All eligible farmers markets and farm stands can apply to participate in Double Up Food Bucks
by submitting an online application.
