The DINE Healthy Environments Program proudly partners with corner stores, grocery stores, farmers’ markets and food pantries to help increase access to healthy foods throughout Durham! 



Durham and South Durham Farmers’ Markets are proud to offer the 55Double Bucks program with SNAP/EBT! Shoppers swipe their SNAP/EBT card at the information desk for any amount and the Farmers’ Market doubles their money up to $10.  That’s up to $10 to buy more local fruits, veggies, meats, cheeses, eggs and much more!  Out of SNAP benefits? No worries! Durham Farmers' Market will double your cash too! Additionally, WIC participants who receive FMNP (Farmers Market Nutrition Program) coupons, will get those coupons matched at the Durham Farmers' Market ($4 for every $4 voucher).   Where?



A first time visit to the Farmers’ Market can be daunting. Fear not! We can show you the ropes. If you are interested in arranging a farmers’ market tour for a group, please contact Nasim Youssefi, 919-560-7890,


Grocery Store tours

Learn how to shop healthy on a budget with a fun tour through the grocery store! After an interactive discussion, participants get to take $10 worth of healthy food home, as part of a fun $10 challenge! To sign up for a tour contact Nasim Youssefi at 919-560-7890 or Tours are conducted in English and Spanish. Registration is required.


Food Pantries

Nutrition classes (such as food demos and tastings) are offered to pantry operators and their clients; assistance with environmental changes such as creating a client choice (supermarket style) pantry, and connection to various resources are some of the ways we assist our Durham pantries. If you manage a food pantry and would like more information on this program please contact Nasim Youssefi at 919-560-7890 or
