06/17/2018: "Funders Promote Locally Grown Food"

San Juan County Health and Community Services is partnering again with Soroptimist International of Friday Harbor, Orcas Island Community Foundation, and the Honeywell Foundation, to offer Market Bucks at Farmers Markets on Orcas and San Juan Islands.

The Market Bucks Program provides additional dollars for women and children participating in the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Nutritional Program, and the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program, to spend at the Farmers Market this summer. This benefit doubles the amount of local foods that may be purchased, expands the number of families that are able to participate in the programs, and supports local farmers.

Don’t miss out on this great benefit! To find out if you qualify and to enroll in these programs contact San Juan County Health and Community Services at 378-4474.

San Juan Island Farmers Market
WIC Farmers Market Checks and Market Bucks for WIC and Senior women, sponsored by Soroptimist International of Friday Harbor and the Honeywell Foundation, will be given out on Saturday, June 23 and Saturday, July 28 from 10AM-1:00PM at the Farmers Market.

For more information visit the San Juan County Health & Community Services website or call 378-4474.
