Double Up Oklahoma can give you up to $20 per day in free food when you shop with your Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits at participating retailers! This is an incredible way to stretch your food benefits.
In this article, we’ll review what Double Up Oklahoma is, who is eligible for it, how it works, and how you can use the DUO program to get more food with your benefits.
What is Double Up Oklahoma?
Double Up Oklahoma is a nutrition incentive program designed to help low income families buy more healthy food with their benefits. It’s part of the nationwide Double Up Food Bucks movement that helps people across the country get more fresh fruits and vegetables!
This dollar-matching program can provide up to $20 per day in free produce when you shop at participating farmers markets and grocery stores. You could effectively double all of your food benefits this way!
Who is eligible for DUO?
There are only three things you need to do in order to be eligible for Double Up Oklahoma:
- You need to live in Oklahoma.
- You need to have an Oklahoma SNAP EBT card.
- You need to shop at a participating retailer (as listed below).
That’s it! As long as you meet all three of those criteria, you can use this program.
How does it work?
When you shop at a participating Double Up Oklahoma retailer, you’ll receive a dollar match. That means that for every dollar you spend, you’ll get an extra dollar to spend on eligible items!
Eligible items include:
- Fresh fruits
- Fresh vegetables
- Fresh herbs
If you are shopping at a farmers market, you may also be able to use your DUO tokens to buy:
- Plants that grow food
- Frozen fruits, vegetables or herbs
- Canned fruits, vegetables or herbs
- Dried fruits, vegetables or herbs
However, the canned, dried and frozen items cannot have any added sugar, salt, oil or fat.
There is a $20 per day maximum, so you can dollar match up to $20. If you spend more than $20 in one day, you’ll still only receive the $20 maximum. The extra DUO Bucks are valid for 60 days, so you need to use them within about two months or they will disappear. If you lose the voucher, they cannot be replaced so please be careful!
Where can I access Double Up Oklahoma?
You can get Double Up Oklahoma bucks at participating farmers markets and grocery stores around the state. Let’s review the list.
At a Farmers Market, you’ll need to visit the information booth first so that you can swipe your EBT card for tokens. This is necessary because many vendors don’t have the time or knowledge to go through the SNAP certification process. The market does it instead. But that means you need to exchange your SNAP benefits for tokens at the information booth so that you can use those tokens around the market.
When you do this, you’ll receive one set of token for the amount you spent and a second set of tokens that are equal to that amount. Those free DUO tokens can only be redeemed for eligible items at the market.

At grocery stores, the process is a little different. Each store chooses to handle their Double Up Oklahoma Bucks a little differently. Some will discount your purchase at time of sale, others will give you coupons to redeem later, and some will track those benefits on a loyalty card.
Either way, you can shop at the store like normal and ask about Double Up Oklahoma Bucks at checkout. If you’d like to know how the process works before you shop, you can always inquire at the Customer Service desk.
