Growing Healthy Produce


Farmers Markets and Farm Stands

SNAP recipients receive a one-to-one dollar match to purchase locally grown produce at many farmers markets and farm stands across Arkansas.  In addition, they will receive free nutrition and cooking education.  Also, using DUFBs increases farmers' sales and creates sustainability by supporting local agriculture.  


DUFB Grocery Stores

The Double Up Food Bucks program is also available in select grocery stores,  including 8 Harps Locations and 4 Hays Locations.  DUFBs are welcome at these stores from May 1st until October 31st while funding is available.

GHP Mobile Sites

In 2017, ArCOP also initiated the Nutrition Education Mobile Unit. The Mobile Unit is a farmers’ market on wheels (trailer) that provides nutrition education at location including areas where there is no access to produce and a high population of SNAP recipients. In 2018, each area will receive weekly and monthly nutrition education at each location and cooking classes, cooking demonstrations, healthy recipes and educational information will be offered to bring healthy affordable foods to the household. The mobile unit will sell local produce from farmers and growers and will accepts both WIC and DUFB. The goal of the mobile unit is to build capacity, a consumer base, and develop local infrastructure, so the farmers can take over the site for a sustainable market. ArCOP will move to another target community to add other locations and increase capacity.
