History of Double Snap Dollars Program

22 Farmers Markets participated in the Double SNAP Dollars program in 2020! That is over a third of the farmers markets in the state! Grocery stores, farm stands, and CSA’s are also eligible to participate in Double SNAP Dollars as long as they are a SNAP certified establishment. Since 2015, over 6,000 customers have been served leading to increased fresh fruit and vegetable consumption and $440,000 has been spent on local foods, boosting Montana Farmers’ Income. Double SNAP Dollars is an important program that helps increase healthy food choices and supports the local Montana agriculture and small farms. This is why Grow Montana is supportive of this bill.
