Introduction

About Field & Fork Network and Double Up Food Bucks

In 2013, F&FN began a partnership with Fair Food Network, a national nonprofit that pioneers solutions that increase access to healthy food--especially in our most underserved communities. The DUFB program makes it easier for low-income individuals and families to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables while supporting farmers and growing local economies. The program is a national model for healthy food incentive programs that provides those who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits with a $1-to-$1 match that encourages the purchase of healthy, locally grown fruits and vegetables. F&FN's signature program, Double Up Food Bucks, piloted in 2014 at 7 market sites and has since expanded to include over 100 unique participating sites statewide.
Retail Sites are required to do the following if selected to participate in DUFB for the 2021 season:

  • Attend an in-person or webinar training
  • Offer and distribute DUFB to SNAP customers at the point of sale
  • Provide F&FN with third party verification of SNAP sales (e.g. copies of batch reports or monthly statements)
  • Promote DUFB and SNAP on-site and in the local community
  • Complete all DUFB reporting requirements, including monthly updates, on the assigned due dates
  • Administer and participate in all program evaluation, including customer and staff surveys. You will be required to submit a number of surveys that is specific to the volume of your store
  • Ensure adequate capacity to operate the program and cover any associated administrative costs
  • Seasonal locations will attend a mid-season call with F&FN and other similar vendors
  • Year-round locations will attend quarterly check-in calls with F&FN and other similar vendors
