Participants attend a short class (various locations, some still being set up) taught by MSU Extension nutrition staff and WIC staff to learn fruit and vegetable benefits & usage tips & coupon-use how-tos. They then receive coupons worth $25.00 to spend for fresh Michigan-grown fruits and vegetables sold at participating farm and farmers’ markets in Michigan. This program benefits both WIC families and local farmers who sell at these markets. Coupons available through September as long as supply lasts. Families sign up through the local WIC office before attending.
