DUFB IS BACK FOR ANOTHER YEAR!

People of La Grande; you live in an amazing community.  

Our funding for the Double Up Food Program was done last year, and we were looking at having to stop matching your SNAP dollars spent at the market.  However, I am very happy to report, local funders have stepped up to the plate, and we will be continuing with this incredible program!!

We have received funding from LCAC,  the Local Community Advisory Council,  Wildhorse Casino, and Imbler High School!!

Once again, we will be able to match the first $10 you spend of SNAP at the market EVERY TIME YOU VISIT!  So while you take $10 off your EBT card, you'll get $20 to spend on the best local produce our farmers have to offer.

Just visit the information booth at the market to get your tokens!
