DOUBLE UP FOOD BUCKS AWARENESS WEEK THROUGH JULY 30
Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture announces Double Up Food Bucks Awareness Week July 24 to July 30, to highlight the Double Up Food Bucks Program.
The Double Up Food Bucks Program is a healthy food incentive program, powered by Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture, that doubles the value of federal nutrition benefits spent at farmers' markets, helping people buy local food while supporting our local farmers and economy.
The week will kick off with the Ashe County Cookout on July 24th followed by Double Up Food Bucks Awareness Day at the King Street Farmers Market.
There will be information tables at the Food Hub on pick-up day and at the Watauga County Farmers’ Market.
