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!
FARMERS MARKET DOUBLE BUCKS PROGRAM
Durham and South Durham Farmers’ Markets are proud to offer the Double Bucks program! Shoppers who receive SNAP (food stamps) can swipe their EBT card at the information desk for any amount and the market will double their money up to $10. That’s extra money to spend on local fruits, veggies, meats, cheeses, eggs and much more! Out of SNAP benefits? No worries! Durham Farmers' Market will double your cash too! (Also available for WIC and Durham Housing Authority residents). Additionally, WIC participants and seniors who receive FMNP (Farmers Market Nutrition Program) coupons, will get those coupons matched.

FARMERS MARKET TOURS
A first time visit to the Farmers’ Market can be daunting. Fear not! We can show you the ropes.
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! Tours are conducted in English and Spanish. Registration is required.
Nutrition classes (such as food demos and astings) 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 use the contact info below.
