This grant will provide additional support to the Fair Food Network’s Double Up Food Bucks program in Flint. The program provides incentives for supplemental nutrition assistance program recipients to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables and dairy products at the Flint Farmers’ Market and participating grocery stores in Flint. Good nutrition, especially foods high in iron, calcium, and Vitamin C, can help mitigate the impact of lead exposure for Flint children and adults. The program engages in extensive marketing activities to encourage all eligible families to enroll in the program, increase usage of incentives, and provide reliable nutrition information to Flint area families.
