They will swipe your card, and then give you paper SNAP bucks. These bucks can be spent on any eligible food item that isn’t hot and ready at the market.
Then, they will match the SNAP bucks $1 for $1 with Double Up Food Bucks, good for Colorado-grown fresh fruits and vegetables. If you spend $5, you get $5. If you spend $10, you get $10! They will match up to $20 per day.
Now that you have your bucks, go shop at the vendor booths.
At The Store
Bring your EBT card to a participating Double Up Food Bucks store.
At the register for every $1 you spend on any SNAP eligible item, you will get $1 off Colorado-grown fruits or vegetables. So if you spend $5 on bread, eggs, meat, milk, etc. you will get $5 off any Colorado-grown produce.
At The Farm Stand
Bring your EBT card to a participating farm stand. Pick out your Colorado grown produce.
When you go to pay with SNAP, get either 50% off your produce purchase or get $1 Double Up Food Buck for every $1 you spend with SNAP. So if you spend $5 you’ll receive 5 Double Up Food Bucks, if you spend $10, you’ll receive $10. Earn up to $20 per day.
At a Food Box or CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)
