Mountain Roots Produce welcomes SNAP shoppers
We are excited to partner with LiveWell Colorado this year to offer the Colorado Double Up Bucks program
LiveWell Colorado launched the Double Up Food Bucks program in Colorado back in 2016. This program offers SNAP shoppers a $1 match of fresh Colorado-grown produce for every $1 they spend on SNAP approved items. This doubles the purchase power of your SNAP benefits, allowing you to buy one CSA Box and get the next week’s CSA Box free of charge. Here is a quick video LiveWell Colorado created explaining how it works.
So now, when you purchase local produce from Mountain Root Produce with a USDA SNAP Card this season, you are eligible to receive Colorado Double Up Bucks. Our produce can be purchased via our 18-Week Summer CSA Program (available in Mancos or Telluride) and/or at our farm stand in Telluride, held on Wednesdays from 11 am to 2pm June through October.
You can learn more about our Summer CSA Program here.
Please remember, when you become a CSA Member, you are joining our farm for the entire 18-week harvest season. SNAP shoppers will pay for their CSA box every other week, at the time of delivery at the appropriate CSA Pickup Location. It is important to understand that we are growing produce for you all summer long and we ask that our SNAP Customers commit to the entire Summer CSA Season, which starts on June 5th and ends October 2nd.
