The Power of Produce (POP Club)
The Power of Produce is a club for kids that endeavors to:
*Increase awareness of the importance of eating fruit and vegetables
*Encourage long-term nutritious eating patterns
*Create fun new opportunities for learning about nutrition
*Give children the confidence to try different foods
*Teach children about the seasonality of fresh produce
POP Club is open to kids age 3-12 and is FREE! Bring your kids to the Power of Produce booth near the Information booth at market. They will receive a POP Passport and the fun begins!
Each week kids complete activities and earn stamps in their passports. Stamps earn them money to spend of fruits and veggies at market! They will taste new vegetables, learn about soil, nutrition, locality, seasonality, explore the market, play market bingo and more.
POP Club will run every other week June through September. The dates are:
June 3 & 17
July 1, 15, & 29
Aug 5 & 19
Sept 2, 16 & 30
We are currently seeking funding to expand this great program. Also needed are books (prizes for the kids), a hand-washing station and a partner in printing our materials.
