How to Double Farmers' Market Nutrition Program Benefits
WIC clients can receive Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) vouchers to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at participating farmers’ markets. Pick up your vouchers at the Double Up Food Bucks booth and get $30 in vouchers for each FMNP eligible child and parent.
FMNP vouchers can only be spent at participating markets. The vouchers are given out at participating markets starting in April and they expire at the end of October.
SFC offers up to $30 in market dollars for each voucher booklet through Double Up Food Bucks. Market 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.
