Power of Produce (PoP) Club!
Operated by the Inland Northwest Food Network, 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 between the ages of 5-12 are eligible to participate in the program free of charge. 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.
