Double Up Food Bucks

SNAP customers easier, affordable access to healthy fruits, vegetables

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 four Valu Land 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. See the location list below for Valu Land locations in Central Michigan.

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.

**Please note: Fair Food Network has paused the Double Up program for March, April and May 2019. As a result, Valu Land store guests will not be able to participate in Double Up Food Bucks during these three months.**
