Double Up Food Bucks Colorado helps increase access to fresh, Colorado-grown fruits and vegetables. When recipients of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) shop at participating farmers markets, they can now have their purchase matched with a voucher worth up to a $20 per visit to put toward Colorado-grown fruits and vegetables.
Student volunteers who are passionate about food systems, local economies, anti-hunger initiatives, and/or agriculture in our state are needed to survey about the health and economic impact of the Double Up Colorado program on both SNAP shoppers and local farmers.
Students will survey customers and local farmers about their experiences at the farmers market as well as long-term impacts to fruit and vegetable consumption. Students will conduct surveys at farmers markets throughout the state, so a car is required. Fluent in both Spanish and English preferred but not required.
Volunteers will need to commit to 5-10 hours per week from June-August (also opportunity to volunteer July-September). This is an unpaid opportunity.
Students can contact Amy Nelms to learn more about this volunteer opportunity. Please include your resume in the email.
