Winter POP Club – Week 16
February 23 – Week 16: This week our POP Kids will be participating in a cooking demo! They will be learning how to make hash browns. They will take potatoes and grate them into strips. Then we will fry them up and serve them to them. Cooking with kids teaches them valuable life long lessons and creating something with your hands that you can eat is always fun!
2-Bite Club: Potatoes
Discover the Power of Produce and join the POP Club this Sunday!
Last Sunday, POP kids learnt about farms animals! They looked through a bunch of different facts about farm animals and tried to match them to the correct animals on the board. 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!
