We expect to offer Double Up Food Bucks at every market. The Farmers Markets Fund in Portland administers funds that come from various sources, including a state appropriation and a forthcoming federal GUSNIP grant.
Fresh & Local, First! works on behalf of all Linn and Benton county farmers’ markets to fund SNAP Match and Double Up Food Bucks.
Fresh & Local, First! helps markets with grants and also has conducted dine-in events at local restaurants and engages the OSU campus in other fund-raising events. They are planning a distanced event soon!
