SERVICES

ENERGY BILL ASSISTANCE

We can help you keep the lights on in your home thanks to a great program through Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC). We can help you get up to $1,000 of relief once per year to make sure that you and your family have the energy you need to live happy and safe.

SNAP

(Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Help feed your family. This program, formerly known as food stamps, will help you acquire an EBT card that you can use at different stores and markets, like ours, to make sure that you and your family have consistent access to nutritious and affordable food. SNAP benefits can be used in our market or on our food box subscription.

DOUBLE BUCKS

Double Up matches your purchases dollar for dollar up to $20 a day that can be used on fruit and vegetables. This program is designed to make sure that you are getting the most nutritious food possible to keep you and your family healthy. We also accept Double Bucks for the My Food Box subscription so you can use your benefits while still taking advantage of the convenience that the subscription offers. Between SNAP benefits and Double Bucks, you’re sure to get the nutritious food you and your family deserve!
