We’ve had an amazing second year coordinating the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program with the Duncan Farmers’ Market during the summer season. The program offered $15 a week for 16 weeks to 55 low income families and seniors referred by community agencies here in the Cowichan Region. Not only does the program offer the opportunity for fresh locally grown produce, eggs, meats, cheese, nuts & seeds, but it encourages the growth of our community by building relationships with farmers and others through the many workshops, garden tours and cooking classes also offered to participants.
While the coupons expire on October 26th, we hope to continue to see everyone in the Garden Pantry Thrift Store and at the Duncan Farmers’ Market. We will keep everyone posted on any news if we are once again selected to facilitate this program in 2015. In the meantime, thanks for your support and enthusiasm for this wonderful program!
