Paying For Your CSA
Did you know that if you purchase your share with SNAP, you may be able to
stretch your dollar even farther with Double Up Food Bucks?
For eligible shares purchased using SNAP benefits, the Pacific NW CSA Coalition will match HALF the cost of your share from participating farms through our Double Up Food Bucks program.
The Double Up Food Bucks money goes directly to your CSA farmer, making CSA more affordable while helping farmers earn a living. For example, a CSA share normally priced at $650 will only cost you $325 with Double Up Food Bucks.
Only Oregon Trail Cards with SNAP benefits (not cash benefits) can be used to purchase the shares.
Double Up Food Bucks are limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis only.
Double Up Food Bucks can only be used for fruits and vegetables.

Double Up Food Bucks for CSA is part of a statewide program administered by the Pacific NW CSA Coalition that provides nutrition incentives to buy healthy, locally-grown fruits and vegetables through CSA, farmers markets, and at some grocery stores. In 2022, the Coalition processed over $160,000 in SNAP and DUFB. The Coalition believes that farmers thrive and communities are healthy when everyone has access to fresh, local food. Double Up Food Bucks makes being a member of a CSA affordable for everyone while still providing a sustainable income for small-scale farms.
Double Up Food Bucks is funded by the State of Oregon and federal nutrition incentive grants. The project is a partnership between Farmers Market Fund, the Pacific NW CSA Coalition, Oregon Food Bank, and the Oregon Farmers Market Association.
