SNAP

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is here for you when you need help buying food. SNAP helps our local economy by helping to stretch monthly food budgets.

> Am I eligible for SNAP?

SNAP is available for all Arizonans who qualify. Plus, you have already paid into the program with your tax dollars. Many Arizonans that work use SNAP to help afford healthy food. SNAP eligibility is determined by the number of people living in your household and monthly income. Click here to view the "SNAP Income Eligibility Limits" chart. Please note, the monthly income limits change annually.

> How to I apply for SNAP?

You can apply for SNAP by going to the Health-e-Arizona PLUS website. Click here to visit the Health-e-Arizona PLUS website.

Call 1-855-432-7587 for assistance applying for SNAP or to request a paper application. See the video below for further information on applying for nutrition assistance through DES. Click here to access a paper application that you can download, print, and mail to DES.

> How do I receive and use my SNAP benefits?

SNAP is easy to use. SNAP benefits are loaded monthly onto a card that works like a debit card. Click here to learn more about how to use your EBT card.

> Where can I use my SNAP benefits?

You get to choose where to shop and what to buy. Plus, when you shop at participating farmers markets and other Double Up Food Bucks locations, you can double your SNAP dollars. Rosebird Farms accepts SNAP benefits at both our farm stand and as payment for CSA share boxes!

We are working on obtaining a license to be able to offer home delivery for SNAP participants in Havasu, Golden Valley, and Yucca.

 

Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB)

Double Up Food Bucks is a program that allows you to get $1 free to spend on Arizona-grown fruits, vegetables, dried beans, edible plants, and seeds for every $1 you spend with your SNAP/EBT card. Click here to visit the Arizona DUFB website. 

> Rosebird Farm Stand

Rosebird Farms accepts SNAP and DUFB for purchases of eligible food at our West of Third storefront in downtown Kingman. The farm stand is open during shop hours and re-stocked twice weekly--Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings. Purchasing produce at the farm stand works just like the grocery store. You get to choose the items and amounts you want! With DUFB, you pay half-price for all eligible items. For example, you can purchase $20 worth of food, for only $10! 

> Rosebird Half-Price CSA Shares

Rosebird Farms also accepts SNAP and DUFB for the purchase of season-long community supported agriculture (CSA) and one-time pre-order farm stand boxes. 

With SNAP/DUFB...

A $29 CSA share costs you $14.50 per week

A $49 share costs you $24.50 per week

A $79 share costs you $39.50 per week

Option 1: Sign up for a 10-week season-long CSA share using the Harvie platform HERE. 

 

You can set a schedule -- weekly, every other week, or once a month -- that works for you. Each Friday the week before you are scheduled to receive a box, you will get an email prompting you to customize your box for the week with your favorite DUFB-eligible items. Rosebird CSA members get the first pick of the produce available each week! Share pick-up is Thursdays from 3-6 pm at Rosebird Farms' West of Third storefront. Pay with your EBT card to receive DUFB half-price shares! 

Option 2: Sign up for a one-time farm stand box using the Harvie platform. Select the DUFB-eligible food items that you and your family love to eat. Pick-up your one-time box Thursday 3-6 pm at Rosebird Farms' West of Third storefront. Pay with your EBT card to receive DUFB half-price shares!
