Based in Portland, Oregon, the Farmers Market Fund (FMF) helps low-income families bring home healthy food, supports small farmers and ranchers, and keeps more food dollars in the local economy. Since 2012, the Fund has been a companion charitable organization to the Portland Farmers Market.
FMF makes nutritious, locally grown produce affordable for low-income, elderly, and underserved populations by doubling SNAP benefits at farmers markets across the state.
Farmers markets participating in the Double Up Food Bucks Program offer SNAP participants a dollar-for-dollar match on their SNAP purchases, which can be spent on local fruits and vegetables.
Ninety percent of SNAP customers reported buying more fruits and vegetables because of Double Up Food Bucks, and 88% reported their overall health improved because of the program. Seventy percent of farmers surveyed said participating in Double Up expanded their customer base, and 69% reported making more money.
The Fund believes everyone in their community should have access to healthy food, regardless of neighborhood, income, or resources. With this initiative, they're bringing the Portland community one step closer to that goal.
