Helping Families Eat Healthy Foods

A seasonal program, the Farmers Market Nutrition Program provides low-income mothers in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) with vouchers that can be used to purchase fresh produce for themselves and their young children 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 2015, the program provided 3,138 families with enough fresh, locally grown produce for 608,790 meals.

Summer Schedule

Eligible participants receive five $6 vouchers that can be used to purchase locally grown fruits and vegetables at five WIC Clinics in Tarrant County.
