Spread the word

Go bananas (and apples, and cherries) in telling others about Double Up.

Join the Double Up Community Across New York

The Double Up Food Bucks program began in 2014 at 7 farmers markets in Western New York. Since then, it has grown to more than 200 locations across New York.

You can help us bring Double Up Food Bucks to even more people. It’s easy as pie.

Our Trusted Partners

Double Up Food Bucks would not exist — much less be such a success — without the support of our many partners. The program’s success is rooted in partnerships with major organizations providing critical funding support, local markets that bring the program to life in their communities, and other organizations that help extend Double Up’s impact with targeted outreach and complementary programming.

Ambassadors: the Face of Double Up

Ambassadors are part-time Double Up employees and on-the-ground program advocates who spread the word about Double Up in their communities. They provide a person-to-person point of connection, trust, and support to new users.

Many Ambassadors intimately know Double Up because they themselves use it in their communities.

What she wishes people knew about the program: “The points last forever!”

Most rewarding Ambassador experience: “I've had to go back to my car and pull cards out of my trunk to sign people up at random places.

"There was certainly an overwhelming response to the program. I would say overall I had a 5-10% increase in my business because of the program. It is a simple and straightforward program which I think lends to its success."
