Winter POP Club – Week 19

 In Get Social with Us

March 15 – Week 19:  This week POP kids will be participating in an activity on our POP board trying to figure out what fruits and vegetables grow above the ground and which grow below. They will do this by placing the correct fruit or vegetable either above the ground line or below it. Then this will be followed by a colouring worksheet that will help them to better understand where fruits and vegetables grow!

2-Bite Club: Frozen Blueberries

Discover the Power of Produce and join the POP Club this Sunday!

Last Sunday, POP Kids had participated in a worksheet teaching them about pickle preservation and then they got hands-on with a cooking demo on how to make a vegan dill pickle dip! 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!
