MIRA is supporting the Fair Food Network (FFN) to conduct a very short survey (6 questions) about the Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) program, a statewide program to help SNAP/EBT/Bridge Card customers buy more Michigan-grown produce. If you complete the survey, you will be placed into a drawing for an iPad Mini 2.
What is Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB)? DUFB is a program of the Fair Food network. Bridge Cardcustomers who purchase $10 or more of fresh, Michigan-grown fruits and vegetables at a participating grocery store, receive an additional $10 (provided by FFN) to purchase more Michigan grown produce. DUFB has been successful in Michigan farmers’ markets since 2010 and is now being tested in a number of grocery stores in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Battle Creek.
Benefits of DUFB for grocery stores: Stores that participate have the potential to significantly increase sales and attract new customers. FFN provides training, marketing and other support to participating stores. In return, participating stores agree to commit staff time, follow all DUFB program guidelines and meet all store requirements.
If your store is interested in participating in DUFB in 2015, or you would like more information, please contact Rachel Chadderdon Bair Fair Food Network at firstname.lastname@example.org or (734) 717-0050.
