If You Have SNAP Benefits, Here’s Where You Can Get Double Up Food Bucks
If you have SNAP benefits, otherwise know as a Lone Star Card, you can get "Double Up Food Bucks" at certain locations for fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are nutritious, high in fiber, and may reduce the risk of developing certain health issues.
According to the Harvard T.H. School of Public Health:
A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar, which can help keep appetite in check.
The "Double Up Food Bucks" not only doubles your fruit and veggie budget (up to $20 per day) it also supports Texas farmers, according to the Double Up Texas website.
Of course, this bonus only works if you can find a place that participates in the program. Here are the places you can use the Double Up Bucks program. (The distance is from our radio station located at 82nd & Quaker. You can run your own search to find the distance from wherever you're at.)
