Michigan leads the way

Double Up Food Bucks is an amazing program for low income families that makes fresh fruits and vegetables available and more affordable! The way it works is you purchase fruits and vegetables at a participating venue, the amount is matched in Michigan grown fruits and vegetables. The program started in 2009 in Detroit and as you will read in the link below, it’s being modeled in other states as well! Feel free to check out their website, also listed below. I put in my zip code and discovered there are at least 10 locations that participate in the program within a 10 mile radius.
