If you have participated in the Double Up Food Bucks program this year, your feedback is needed!
Our co-op was thrilled to start offering Double Up Food Bucks earlier this year. After success at farmer’s markets, the program extended to a small number of grocery stores in Oregon for the first time. Double Up puts more healthy fresh produce on the plates of low income families while supporting local growers. Double Up matches the value of SNAP spent on fresh fruits and vegetables providing shoppers with credit for future produce purchases, up to $10 per shopping trip. (SNAP stands for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps.)
If you have been a recipient of Double Up this year, our partners at Oregon Food Bank want to hear from you. Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey about your experience using Double Up.
If you prefer, you can text “DUFBGROCERY” to 833-535-1376 to take the survey on your smart phone or other device. Your survey responses will help improve the program, and help inform program funders on why they should continue to support Double Up. The survey should take about five minutes to complete, and it will be available through October. All responses will be confidential and you do not need to provide your name or contact information unless you would like to have us contact you about your experiences using this program.
