Double Up Food Bucks

Vegetables

The Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) Incentive Program helps Iowans with low incomes buy fresh fruits and vegetables. It is also a way to support local economies in your community.

You must use your SNAP EBT card to buy fresh produce at participating grocery stores or farmers markets. DUFB will give you an extra dollar for every dollar you spend up to $10 on fruits and vegetables. That means you can buy even more produce.

If you live in Iowa, visit the Healthiest State Initiative, iowahealthieststate.com, to find a DUFB location near you. If you are not in Iowa, check out Double Up Food Bucks, doubleupamerica.org, to find participating grocery stores and farmers markets in your area.
