We kicked off our Power of Produce Club and enrolled 154 kids in just the first two weeks! We are so excited to be offering this program in cooperation with the Hayden Farmers’ Market every Saturday through September 9. PoP Club seeks to encourage children to make healthy food choices by empowering them to shop for, grow and prepare fresh fruits and vegetables. The program is free for all kids ages 5-12. We are in need of financial donations to help us cover our expenses. Donations can be made at the market or online using our Donation Form. Thanks for your support!
Volunteers needed! We are also seeking volunteers to help staff the PoP Club booth and other farmers markets this summer. Contact Teri if you are interested in helping.
