A huge thanks to our amazing Double Up Arizona partners!
Thanks to all who attended our Double Up Food Bucks Arizona partners meeting earlier this month! We had a great time discussing everyone's successes, challenges, and insights. An extra special thanks to those who provided a letter of support for our next USDA FINI grant application. We're looking forward to an even better 2018.
Congratulations to the Sierra Vista Farmers Market for winning the drawing for a promotional market video! Keep an eye out for it in the new year.
Announcing the Arizona-Grown Fruit and Vegetable Incentive for Food Insecure Families
We are thrilled to announce a campaign for new statewide legislation that will help Arizonans bring home more fresh, local, healthy food. Senator Kate Brophy McGee is sponsoring the bill, which will call for an appropriation from the general fund to enhance the buying power of SNAP participants through the Double Up Food Bucks Arizona program to buy Arizona-grown fruits and vegetables at farmers markets, farm stands, mobile markets, community supported agriculture (CSA) and grocery stores.
The bill would help expand the reach of Double Up Arizona's incredible benefits to more communities, stores and organizations across our state. Stay tuned to Pinnacle Prevention's and Double Up Food Bucks Arizona's Facebook, Twitter, and newsletters for more details and exciting announcements.
Double Up Food Bucks partners implementing the program at farmers markets, farm stands, and CSAs can order signs, recipes, flyers and other promotional materials.
this order form if you need more promotional and communication materials.
Please provide shipping information and include the total number of each item you would like, and return it to Jessie Gruner via email at:

Don't hesitate to provide us with feedback on our materials or provide requests for us to create additional materials for customers, vendors, or even market volunteers.
