It's Easy to Get Started
When you use your EBT Card, Double Up matches your SNAP purchases dollar for dollar, up to $20 a day, for locally grown fruits and vegetables. That means your family gets free fresh fruits and vegetables when you use your EBT Card at participating farmers' markets and farm stores.
Since 2019, hundreds of East Tennesseans have used Double UP Food Bucks to buy more than $60,000 worth of healthy, local food.
