Double Up Oklahoma

Helping families receive additional resources to purchase fresh produce

The U.S. Department of Agriculture awarded a Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) grant to the Community Service Council (CSC) to increase fruit and vegetable consumption through the Double Up Oklahoma (DUO) program. The purpose of the FINI program is to help low-income families participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the Food Stamp program, to receive additional resources to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables.

The DUO program, modeled after the Fair Food Network’s Double Up Food Bucks program, doubles the value of federal nutrition benefits spent at participating markets, helping people purchase healthy fruits and vegetables while supporting local farmers. The DUO program will provide SNAP recipients the opportunity to stretch their food dollars by matching up to $20 of SNAP benefits per day at participating farmers’ markets to buy fresh fruits, vegetables, or food bearing plants that were grown in Oklahoma. This program is administered by CSC with support provided by a number of community foundations and service organizations. Several markets across the state are participating during the first year. Additional farmers’ markets will participate in the program during the second year of funding.
