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.
Video Series: Voices of Arizona Farmers Markets


If you haven't had a chance yet, check out our "Voices of Arizona Farmers Markets" video series! We've had a wonderful time visiting many our Double Up partner markets to help highlight the farmers, businesses, market managers, and customers that make Arizona's farmers markets (and Double Up Arizona) so special. So far, we've featured interviews from the Prescott Farmers Market and the Roadrunner Park Farmers Market. Thanks for having us! 

You can watch the videos by following the links below. We encourage you to share them with your network! 

We will be visiting many more markets in the new year, so keep an eye out for new videos on our Youtube channel, Facebook, and Twitter. 

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.
