Power of Produce....for the kids 5-12 years!
There is always a lot for young farmers' market supporters to do at Riverside Farmers' Market!
We have a table set up beside the market manager's table. Here young supporters of the farmer's market can find fun prizes, giveaways and activities. Some of the cool things we have done so far include a fathers day card, scavenger hunt and seed planting activities.
The Power of Produce Club encourages kids to make healthy food choices for themselves. And they are making a choice every week; which means they are practising a healthy habit. Kids who shop and interact with the growers and farmers are able to fully participate in the market. By interacting with the people who grow fruits and vegetables, kids learn about variety, best practices, and value.
When kids participate in the Power of Produce they are empowered to choose fruits and vegetables they want to eat. The POP Club program equips families with nutrition education and cultivates future generations of farmers market supporters by providing farmers and children with the opportunity to connect over fresh, local produce.
HOW THE POP CLUB WORKS:
*Receive a POP treats.
*Participate in value-creating activities (POP CLUB FUN!) based around food, nutrition and food growing, such as demonstrations, scavenger hunts, research projects and more.
