The program is funded through the Fair Food Network and aims to help low-income families acquire Michigan-grown fresh fruits and vegetables while supporting local farmers and our local economy. For every dollar you spend on your Bridge Card, the Double Up Food Bucks program will automatically double your money, up to $10 per market day, to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables! If you have a Bridge Card you can receive $20 of fresh vegetables and fruits each week all year.
