About:

two-brothers-tasting-tomatoes

Nourish Kids provides an opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables. Kids build relationships with farmers, create positive associations with fruit and vegetables, develop budgeting skills, and begin to influence their local food economy.

Nourish Kids Club is FREE for children ages 2-12 and includes an activity, a sample of a locally-grown fruit or vegetable, and $5 in Produce Bucks to be spent at the market.
