Do you receive federal food assistance via the SNAP program and use an EBT card for grocery purchases? If so, there is an option for using your SNAP benefits which will put money back in your pocket! It's called DOUBLE UP FOOD BUCKS and the program is now expanding to more locations in the KC metro, including in Roeland Park. This is how it works:
- Visit a participating grocery store or farmer's market. You can search for the participants nearest you here. At farmer's markets, go to the market office or info booth first to find out which products qualify.
- Make a qualified purchase of local fresh fruits and vegetables with your EBT card. Only locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables qualify for Double Up Food Bucks.
- Earn $1 of food bucks for every $1 you spend on local fresh fruits and vegetables. Up to $25 per day can be earned. At the City Market in Kansas City, up to $15 can be earned. That's it!
