Farmer's Market Vouchers for WIC Recipients Now Available
Wed, 30 Apr 2014 13:23:58 GMT —
The Food Bank RGV is taking a step toward making healthy eating easier for all.
WIC clients can now sign up for a program that will distribute $30 vouchers for each family member to participate in farmer's market programs.
The vouchers are available on a first come, first serve basis at the food bank r-g-v.
Farmer's Markets have exploded in popularity recently as a push to organic, healthier foods emerges.
Local artisans and farmers bring their items, like fresh produce, dairy, meats, and more are sold to community members.
For more information on the program, contact Adam Rios at 956-904-4527.
