WIC Families Received $644,000 of Produce this Farmers’ Market Season!

The 2021 WIC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program will come to a close on November 30th after another successful year! Congress began this program in 1992 with funding from the United States Department of Agriculture to bring more fresh fruits and vegetables to WIC families while familiarizing them with farmers’ markets and directly supporting the local community. 

This summer PHFE WIC distributed farmers’ market checks (vouchers) each worth $28 to 23,000 families for a total of $644,000 worth of fruits and vegetables!

WIC Families: Spend your checks before November 30th

To find farmers’ markets that accept the WIC vouchers, visit FMFinder.org and search for markets that accept WIC & Senior FMNP, or use California WIC’s Farmers’ Market search tool here.

Farmers’ Market vouchers will expire on November 30, 2021.

Thank you to all of our community partners for spreading the word, and to farmers’ market managers, staff, and vendors for their support and commitment to the program.

The Farmers’ Market program is for a limited time only each year! The next WIC FMNP season starts summer 2022. To make sure you don’t miss out on your free farmers’ market produce next summer, sign up for WIC text messages (send a text to 91997) and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
