Program offers low-income families access to fresh fruit, veggies

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Fair Food Network's Double Up Food Bucks program is introducing new developments for its third season which will provide even more low-income Michigan families with greater access to fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables.

There are now more than 100 sites across Michigan that participate in Double Up Food Bucks, which runs from June to November. Anyone who uses Bridge Cards can redeem SNAP benefits to purchase more fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. Their Bridge Card purchases are matched for up to $20 with DUFB tokens, which can be used to buy Michigan-grown produce.

For a complete list of participating markets and hours of operation, please visit www.doubleupfoodbucks.org. or call 1-866-586-2796.

For information about obtaining a Bridge Card, call 1-888-MiBridg (1-888-642-7434) or visit www.michigan.gov/mibridges
