Park Forest Main Street Market Double Bucks program doubles the value of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits spent at participating markets, helping people bring home more healthy fruits and vegetables while supporting local farmers. The wins are three-fold: low-income consumers eat more healthy food, local farmers gain new customers and make more money, and more food dollars stay in the local economy. Customers can get up to an extra $25 per swipe of their LINK card – no weekly limit. If you swipe for $10, you get $20, if you swipe $50, you get $25.
