SNAP Double Dollars Program


The SNAP Double Dollars Program, sponsored by Reid Health Community Benefit, doubles the value of any SNAP Dollars redeemed at the Farmers Market in the form of $1 and $10 "Market Tokens". These tokens can be spent on any SNAP eligible product at the Market.

The Double Dollars Market tokens can be used year-round at the Farmers Market!

The Richmond Farmers Market thanks Reid Health Community Benefit for their support

Market tokens can also be used towards eligible items on the Online Farmers Market, found at farmersmarket.richmondindiana.gov

How to use SNAP/P-EBT at the Farmers Market:

  • Purchase SNAP Tokens to use at the market using a P-EBT issued card or regular Hoosier Works EBT card by visiting the Market Info tent (located by the restrooms on the Plaza) at the Farmers Market or by calling us at (765) 983-7425.
  • Your card will be charged and you will be given wooden Market tokens in double the value of your purchase. (So, if we charge your SNAP card $20, you'll receive $40 in Market Tokens!)
  • Wooden tokens can be used at any Richmond Farmers Market vendor on any SNAP eligible item! (Also, they never expire, so bring them back if you don't use them all!)

Pandemic EBT

As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indiana FSSA is offering additional benefits to households with children who receive free or reduced meals at school (regardless of whether they were previously SNAP recipients or not).

See the press release from the FSSA here:

Additional assistance arriving soon for Hoosier families whose children receive free and reduced-cost meals at school, via the “Pandemic EBT” program

These benefits will equal the value of school breakfasts and lunches per child for the number of missed school days since school was cancelled.

About SNAP

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program provides food assistance to low and no income people and families living in the United States. It is a federal aid program administered by the Food and Nutrition Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, however, distribution of benefits occurs at the state level. In Indiana, the Family and Social Services Administration is responsible for ensuring federal regulations are initially implemented and consistently applied in each county.
