Double Up on Fresh Fruits and Vegetables in Michigan and Toledo Area

This blog discussed how the elderly and children could buy to more fresh fruits and vegetables.  Here's how SNAP recipients in Michigan and the Toledo, Ohio area can double up on their fruits and veggies through October.  It's through a program called Double Up Food Bucks, both in Michigan and metro Toledo.

Here's how it works: go to a participating farmer's market, and see the Double Up booth with your Michigan Bridge card, or Ohio Direction card with your tokens.  You can get up to $20 in Double Up tokens, to double your ability to purchase fresh items at the market.  It's only good for fresh products grown in the state, and good from May through October.  Here's the Michigan markets that are participating, and here's the ones in Toledo
