DOUBLE SNAP/EBT

ASAP’s Double SNAP program is a one-to-one match on SNAP dollars. For every dollar spent using SNAP/EBT at participating markets, customers get twice that amount to buy food. Find out more about Double SNAP at asapconnections.org/snap.

  • ASAP’s Double SNAP is currently available at 8 markets // West Asheville Tailgate Market, ASAP Farmers Market, North Asheville Tailgate Market, Enka-Candler Tailgate Market, East Asheville Tailgate Market, Hendersonville Farmers Market, Mills River Farm Market, and Transylvania Farmers Market.

  • The average SNAP sale per shopper across all 8 participating markets is $40, which ASAP doubles so they can spend $80. A $40 donation can cover one shopping trip for a family using Double SNAP.

  • Double SNAP sales differ across participating markets. A larger donation of $250, $500, or $1,000 could cover Double SNAP at a single market for an entire month! 

  • More people are using SNAP at farmers markets. The number of unique shoppers at each market using their SNAP/EBT card rises every month.
