Farmers Markets & Grocery Stores
Local partners in South Dakota and North Dakota are working with Fair Food Network to bring Double Up Food Bucks to grocery stores and farmers markets in tribal communities on the Standing Rock, Yankton Sioux, and Turtle Mountain American Indian Reservations. In 2018, South Dakota State University Extension alongside North Dakota State University Extension launched the program with support from a 2018 USDA FINI award. This pilot serves as a model that can be replicated in other Native American communities in both states to serve even more low-income families and local producers.
