SNAP Double Up Bucks in our CSA | New South Produce Cooperative
 

Double Up Bucks Come to the New South CSA

Double Up Bucks Come to the New South CSA

Double Up Bucks LogoNew South is proud to partner with the Arkansas Coalition for Obesity Prevention (ArCOP) to bring Double Up Food Bucks our CSA shareholders in 2019.

Double Up Food Bucks is an incentive program the matches the value of SNAP benefits when spent on locally grown fresh fruits and veggies. The Fair Food Network calls the program as a “win/win/win”:

“Low-income families bring home more healthy food, area farmers gain new customers and make more money, and more food dollars stay in the local economy. Each has a positive ripple effect of benefits.”

So how do you use SNAP and Double Up to sign up for the CSA?
  1. Review our SNAP Policy
  2. Reserve your weekly share of fresh, local produce
  3. Select SNAP (Food Stamps) and Double Up Bucks as your payment method
  4. Connect with our CSA staff to set up your weekly payment plan

How do I pay for the CSA with SNAP?

We’ll bring your share to your pickup location on the delivery schedule that you choose. When you arrive with your SNAP card to collect your produce box, you will receive a $20 Double Up Bucks credit. That means that each CSA share cost only $14.99, and you’ll have more SNAP dollars to spend on our other local food items like the Local Makers Medley. #winwinwin
