Double your food dollars

Double Up Food bucks

From apples to zucchini, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants can earn additional dollars for purchasing any fresh produce with the Double Up Food Bucks program.

35 Family Fare locations in Michigan are taking part in Double Up Food Bucks, making it 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.

For each dollar of fresh produce SNAP customers purchase using their EBT Bridge Card and Rewards account, an equivalent amount of points will be earned and placed on their Rewards account, up to $20 per day.

Points will be loaded on the Rewards account the next day, so if you purchase produce on Tuesday for example, the points will show up Wednesday.

Shoppers can then use their Rewards account to redeem the points for free fresh fruits and vegetables at participating Family Fare locations. Each point is valued at $1, with a maximum dollar-for-dollar match of $20 per day on the SNAP customer’s Rewards account. 

Frequently asked questions:

No. A SNAP customer must have a Rewards account to participate in the program at Family Fare because points earned and redeemed are done so on the Rewards account.

    Double Up Food Bucks club points earned will not show up on your receipt until the next day. Your $4.00 in Double Up points will show up in your Rewards the following day. 

    A customer’s total Double Up club points will be printed on each receipt at the bottom in the club section. However, the points the customer earned in a transaction today will not show up in the club section until tomorrow. Customers can also check Double Up points on in-store kiosks, the Rewards account website or using the free Family Fare app (available on Google Play and App Store).

    Yes, a customer can redeem points on their Rewards account at any one of the participating Family Fare or VG’s stores.

    No, a customer cannot earn points at a Family Fare and redeem them at a non- Family Fare participating location. Double Up points are earned on the Rewards account, which cannot be used anywhere other than at Family Fare or VG’s participating locations.

    Public support of healthy food incentives limits its usage to low-income individuals who receive federal nutrition assistance, or SNAP (formerly known as food stamps). For more information on the Double Up Food Bucks program, visit Fair Food Network.
