Nutrition Coupon Program

Nutrition program.jpgThe BC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program (FMNCP) is a healthy eating initiative that supports farmers’ markets and strengthens food security across British Columbia. Community partner organizations hand out coupons to lower-income families and seniors participating in their food literacy programs. These coupons can be spent at all BC farmers' markets that participate in the FMNCP to purchase fruits, vegetables, cheese, eggs, nuts, fish and meat. Each household enrolled in the program is eligible to receive a minimum of $15/week in coupons. 

The Clearwater Farmers Market and Yellowhead Community Services has partnered to deliver this program to 20 low income families, pregnant women and seniors in Clearwater.
