SNAP recipients can receive up to $30 match on produce at six Houston-area farmers markets

HOUSTON, Texas -- Six area farmers markets are allowing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program customers to double their spending power.

Local nonprofit Urban Harvest's Double Up Houston program is now offering a $30 spending match at area farmers markets for those who receive benefits through SNAP or the pandemic-specific P-SNAP.

Urban Harvest will match expenses up to $30 to double customers' spending abilities. New customers can also receive a $5 coupon.
