Join the Double Up Community Across Michigan
Double Up Food Bucks began in five Detroit farmers markets in 2009. Since then, it has grown to more than 250 locations and served more than 85,000 households across Michigan.

You Can Connect People to the Power of Food

Ambassadors: the Face of Double Up
Ambassadors are part-time Double Up employees and on-the-ground program advocates who spread the word about Double Up in their communities. They provide a person-to-person point of connection, trust, and support to new users.
Many Ambassadors intimately know Double Up because they themselves use it in their communities.

Meet Our Ambassadors
“This program is what gets people through the month. It’s the fresh fruit and veggies on the sides of their plate at dinner time.”
What she wishes people knew about the program: “The points last forever!”
Most rewarding Ambassador experience: “I've had to go back to my car and pull cards out of my trunk to sign people up at random places.”
“Detroit is so big! And what makes it so big is the people and the life."
