ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Help is on the way to address food insecurity in Rochester.
Double Up Food Bucks will receive $2 million in funding from the state to expand its access to fresh food for low-income residents.
Double Up is a nutrition incentive program matching SNAP funds dollar for dollar, up to $20 per day, to buy fresh fruits and vegetables.
“At a time when many folks are struggling due to the pandemic and the rising cost of food due to inflation, these resources will help many put health food on their tables,” Lisa French, Field & Fork Network executive, said.
Field & Fork Network has more than 180 sites across New York, and operates at all 55 of Foodlink’s Curbside Markets and Abundance Co-op in Rochester. For more information, click here.
