Farmers Market Coupon Program
Nelson and District Seniors Coordinating Society is helping to distribute coupons from the BC Association of Farmers’ Market to low-income families, pregnant women and seniors. Each family participating in the program was eligible for $27 per week in market coupons.
The program is supported by the provincial government, the Provincial Health Services Association and the Columbia Basin Trust.
In 2022 we helped 35 low-income seniors to access fresh local healthy produce directly from Farmers. In total, Nelson market customers received $16,578 worth of Farmers Market Coupon Program coupons.
