Power of Produce (PoP) Club

20170927_150839.jpgDeveloping the next generation of healthy eaters, the Power of Produce (PoP) Club is a farmers markets incentive program for children offered at farmers markets throughout the nation, based on a program started in Oregon.

Each week, children ages 4 to 12 receive a $2 token to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables.

The intent of the PoP Club is to engage children at farmers markets and empower them to make healthful food choices.  Participating in the Club is FREE, but families must register and check-in weekly at the SJUCC Market Booth to receive tokens.  On average, a family with 3 children in the program could save $100 on fruits and vegetables throughout the summer.

Here’s the weekly schedule of events.
