FMNP vouchers can only be spent at participating markets. The coupons are given out at participating markets in the spring and they expire at the end of the fall season.
SFC offers up to $20 in Double Dollars for each voucher booklet through the SFC Double Dollars project. Double Dollars do not expire and can be used throughout the year. To see if you are eligible to receive FMNP vouchers, contact your local WIC clinic.
