Double your food dollars
UPDATE: Fair Food Network has paused the Double Up Food Bucks program at grocery stores from August 1-December 31.
During this time you cannot earn more Double Up Food Bucks at our grocery stores but you can keep spending any Double Up Food Bucks you have already earned to date. For more information please visit Fair Food Network to learn more.
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.
Six Family Fare locations in Eastern 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 yes Rewards account, an equivalent amount of points will be earned and placed on their yes account.
Points will be loaded on the yes 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 yes Rewards account to redeem the points for free 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 yes account. Currently, the $20 maximum has been increased to $50 per day in earnings, per Fair Food Network’s approval. The $50 maximum will be in effect until further notice from Fair Food Network.
No. A SNAP customer must have a yes Rewards account to participate in the program at Family Fare because points earned and redeemed are done so on the yes account.
Yes. A SNAP customer must use her EBT Bridge Card to EARN points.

Double Up Food Bucks club points earned will not show up on your receipt until the next 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 yes Rewards account website or using the free Family Fare apps (available on Google Play and App Store).
Yes, a customer can redeem points on his yes account at any one of the participating Family Fare 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 yes account, which cannot be used anywhere other than at Family Fare.
