The Inland Northwest Food Network is thrilled to announce that we will once again be offering the Power of Produce (PoP) Club at the Hayden Farmers Market throughout the summer of 2019! Our 2018 season was extremely popular (516 kids enrolled!) with rave reviews from kids, parents, and farmers alike.

PoP Club is a fun and engaging children’s program, held in cooperation with the Kootenai County Farmers Market.  The program seeks to encourage children to make healthy food choices by empowering them to shop for, grow, and prepare fresh fruits and vegetables.

Children, ages 5-12, are eligible to participate in the program, free of charge. Upon registering, they will be given a reusable shopping bag and a PoP Club button. In addition, each week club members will receive a token worth $2 to purchase a fresh fruit, vegetable or plant at participating farmer booths at the market, or they can choose to save their tokens to buy a larger item such as a fruit tree.

A PoP Club booth will offer interactive, age-appropriate, cooking and gardening activities for club members.

The program will run weekly, from June 1 – August 31, 2019, at the Hayden Farmers Market.

We look forward to seeing you at the Market!

Currently, the PoP Club has only been funded for 7 of the 14 proposed weeks. If you would like to see this program continue, please consider giving a tax-deductible donation here.
