Double Up Food Bucks
Double Up Food Bucks™!
From apples to zucchini, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants can earn free produce with the Double Up Food Bucks program.
With all three ValuLand locations in Central Michigan taking part in Double Up Food Bucks, it’s easier than ever for SNAP store guests to take advantage of the program and double their buying power when it comes to fresh fruits and vegetables.
Every time a SNAP customer purchases fresh fruits and vegetables using an EBT Bridge Card, the customer will get half of the produce for FREE, up to $20 a day. Currently, the $20 maximum has been increased to $50 per day in earnings, per Fair Food Network’s approval. The $50 maximum will be in effect until further notice from Fair Food Network.
See the location list below for ValuLand locations in Central Michigan.
