WIC Project FRESH
WIC-eligible individuals receive coupons to purchase fruits and vegetables from local farmers markets. Participants learn how to choose produce that is locally grown, ideas for preparing fruits and vegetables, storage and preservation for fresh fruits and vegetables and how to increase their fruit and vegetable intake.
WIC Project FRESH was created by the Farmers Market Nutrition Program and operates currently in Michigan through the Michigan Department of Community Health.
WIC Project FRESH is an educational program providing participants with coupons to purchase locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables at participating farmer’s markets. WIC Project FRESH also teaches participants about food preservation.
WIC Project FRESH can help you learn how to:
- Choose locally grown produce
- Prepare a fruit or vegetable in a new way
- Store and preserve fresh fruits and vegetables
- Increase fruit and vegetable consumption
- Find other community resources that can benefit you
