Double Up Food Bucks

Double Up Food Bucks is a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps) matching program in Northeast Kansas farmers markets. The program provides a dollar-for-dollar match to help low-income families purchase healthy, local food. SNAP users can swipe their benefit cards at the farmers market and receive up to $25 in matching funds to help them purchase locally grown fruits and vegetables. The program is a win-win-win for our local food system. Low-income families can purchase and eat more healthy foods, local farmers access new customers and new sources of revenue and more dollars stay in local Kansas communities. For more information, visit www.doubleupkc.org.

Trim & Easy Weeknight Meals ($18)

Tuesday, August 16 | 7:00-9:00 p.m.

“I just don’t have time to cook - especially healthy foods, I’m too tired to cook a meal after working all day, cooking takes too long”. It really doesn’t have to be this way.

You’ll sample Crispy Apple Walnut Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette; Rosemary Scented Tuscan Casserole; One Pan Garlicky Pasta with Sausage and Peas; and finish the evening with Delicious and Comforting Cherry Apple Crisp. You really can do this!

This research combined with our own conversations with Owners and shoppers has helped us realize that there’s an opportunity for The Merc to offer more choices and better serve the whole community. Affordability is a key issue in the healthy, local and organic food movement and we are addressing it head on with our product selection.Click here to read on!
