Double Up Food Bucks Expands in Year Two: LiveWell’s Healthy Food Access Program Reaches More Low-income Families, Supports Local Farmers & Economy

Double Up Food Bucks Colorado is a program led by LiveWell Colorado that helps provide free fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables for low-income families across the state. Thirty-eight farmers markets and farm stands, four small retailers, and three weekly food box programs in 20 counties across the state partnered to provide Double Up Food Bucks in its inaugural year. The program was received so well, it has more than doubled its reach in 2017, adding eight additional counties and expanding to 70 farmers markets and farm stands, 10 food box locations, and 10 grocery stores and innovative retailers, including Lowe’s Mercado in Aurora.
