SNAP/EBT Double Dollar Program Donation
The SNAP/EBT Double Dollar Program allows SNAP (formerly known as the food stamp program) beneficiaries that visit the Old Town Farmers’Market to receive up to $10 in Double Dollar tokens towards eligible food purchases at the Market. For these families, this program means that for every dollar, they are able to purchase twice the amount of healthy fruits and vegetables than they would otherwise be able to afford. The SNAP/EBT Double Dollar Program is a great incentive to get more families to shop at farmers’ markets providing them with access to healthier and locally grown foods. The Double Dollar Program is not a City-funded program and is dependent upon donations and contributions. Therefore, any donation that you can make to continue this very important program at the Old Town Farmers’ Market will benefit SNAP/EBT recipients by providing them continued access to healthy foods.
