POP Clubs Help Kids Learn About and Eat Local Produce
As part of our Friends Feeding Friends program, we like to share news about local food opportunities. Kids can get a taste of local fruits and vegetables this summer—plus their very own money to spend on fresh, local produce—with the new Power of Produce (POP) Club, happening every Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm right at the Canaan Farmers and Artisans' Market June 24th through August 12th!
Power of Produce Clubs are simple, fun, and free. Children sign up at the POP table and start the day’s activity—a farm stand scavenger hunt, a vegetable quiz, an art project, or another produce-related activity. Once they complete the activity, they return to the POP table to receive their POP Bucks: $3 tokens just for kids to spend on local fruits and vegetables here at the farm stand. Kids ages 4-12 can participate once or all summer.
So tell your family and friends, bring your kids, and get a taste for POP! They just might start shopping for their own vegetables. Every Sunday this summer from 10 am to 2 pm.
Vital Communities is supporting the POP Clubs this summer, as well as 13 other POP Clubs across the Upper Valley with funding from the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food, HNH Foundation, and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
