ATTN: SNAP Users!

Thanks to a USDA grant awarded to Buy Fresh Buy Local of the Greater Lehigh Valley, we’re offering DOUBLE SNAP throughout the market season! Each time you purchase EFM tokens with your SNAP card, BFBLGLV will match your purchase with Double SNAP tokens to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables (up to $10 per day)!

Here’s how it works:

  • Just bring your SNAP card to the Information Tent and we’ll process it for whatever amount you’d like in $1 SNAP tokens valid for use with all take-home foods.
  • Then BFBLGLV will match that purchase with an equal number of Double SNAP tokens, which can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables!
