This is a great program that benefits both local farmers and those eligible for WIC Voucher benefits. We purchase fresh produce from local farmers and sell it at cost to make it affordable. Hosting these markets at WIC clinics offer solutions to area food deserts and alleviate transportation issues to the nearest grocery store with fresh produce.
WHEN? April - October on Tuesday mornings 7:30 to early afternoon (end time dependent on when we run out of produce). You are welcome to volunteer the entire shift or you can choose your own hours during that timeframe if you'd prefer
