Access increased to locally grown foods for the WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program

San Juan County Health and Community Services is partnering with Soroptimist International of Friday Harbor and Orcas Island Community Foundation to offer Market Bucks at Farmers Markets on Orcas and San Juan Islands. The Market Bucks Program provides additional dollars for women and children participating in the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Nutritional Program, and the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program, to spend at the Farmers Market this summer. This benefit doubles the amount of local foods that may be purchased, expands the number of families who are able to participate in the programs, and supports local farmers.

Don’t miss out on this great benefit! To find out if you qualify and to enroll in these programs contact San Juan County Health and Community Services at 360-378-4474.
