Winter POP Club – Week 12
January 26 – Week 12: This week our POP kids will be participating in a cooking demo. We will be bringing in our lovely guest, Denise, who will be helping us to create a stone soup from produce found at the market. We will take produce that is in season and children will be able to come up to the POP booth, chop up some veggies and add them to the soup. We will also have a soup ready made for the kids to try.
2-Bite Club: Potatoes
Discover the Power of Produce and join the POP Club this Sunday!
Last Sunday, the POP kids participated in creating their own totes bags. They took old t-shirts and and with the help of the volunteers, turned them into reusable shopping bags! If you haven’t yet registered, come down to the POP tent this Sunday and join the club! We’ll be doing fun activities for the kids every week 🙂
So, how does the POP Club work?
Well, the POP Club is a farmers market-based kids program. Each week children (ages 5-12 years old) will participate in fun and educational activities that will teach them about fruits and vegetables, local food systems and healthy food preparation. After that, they will be trying the 2-Bite of the week which will be a fruit or vegetable that’s in season and can be found at the market. As they try the 2-Bite we will share with them interesting facts about what they are eating. Once they finish the activity and try the 2-Bite, children receive a $3 market token that can be used towards any fruit or vegetable of their choice. They can either use their token right then or save them for bigger purchases. This teaches kids how to make healthier food choices and how to manage their money.
There is no cost to participate and the program runs every Sunday rain or shine!
Hope to see you this Sunday!
