Share With Your Neighbours!

Join Vancouver Farmers Markets and the BCAFM in our quest to raise $6,600 for the farmers market nutrition coupon program. For the price of two lattes, you can help lower-income seniors and families purchase quality nutritious food at BC farmers markets. The program provides lower-income seniors and families who are enrolled in cooking and skill building programs with coupons each week to spend on fish, meat, eggs, vegetables, fruit, cheese, nuts and fresh cut herbs at their local farmers market. By donating to the campaign, you can help build a healthier community with greater food security. Stop by the Info Booth and share the wealth this Wednesday!
