The Power of Produce (POP Club)
*suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic (will resume when possible!)
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
POP Club needs YOU!
We are currently seeking donors and sponsors to expand this great program. We have depleted our funds and the club is still growing fast! Success is wonderful but we have quickly depleted our supplies and materials. Funds received will be put toward completing and printing lesson plan materials (sturdy materials that hold up outdoors in wind and rain), printing more passports and handouts, purchasing vegetables from farmers for tastings, and the small prizes we use as incentives (buttons, temp tattoos).
If you would like to donate to, or sponsor the club please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
