FARMERS MARKET NUTRITION PROGRAM

at WIC CLINICS

 

Helping Families Eat Healthy Foods

A seasonal program, the Farmers Market Nutrition Program provides participants in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) with vouchers that can be used to purchase fresh produce during the summer.

In Tarrant County, TAFB works closely with the Department of Public Health to coordinate the distribution of vouchers and fresh fruits and vegetables at five local WIC clinics. Local farmers from the Downtown Farmers Association travel to the clinics to make the produce easily accessible for eligible participants.

In 2013, the program provided more than 3,300 families with almost $92,000 worth of fresh, locally grown produce.
