Vancouver Farmers Markets Fresh to Families Fund

Vancouver Farmers Markets LogoThe Vancouver Farmers Markets Fresh to Families Fund supports the Fresh to Families Project to provide access to fresh, locally grown food for low income families, newly arrived refugees, and at-risk expectant mothers.

Vancouver Farmers Markets feed people and create community. We support small farm production, nourish people and connect neighbours. As a registered BC non-profit, we operate eight weekly farmers markets throughout the city that support 250 small scale producers and keep 6,000 acres of BC farmland in production. Each year, our markets feed and nourish over 450,000 people, including low income families and seniors through our Fresh to Families Project.

Each donation of $20 will send a family to the market one time - donations of $250 will send a family to the market all summer, from June-October 2017.

Each household enrolled in the program is eligible to receive $15/week in fresh food coupons from June-October, which can be spent at farmers markets for produce, meat, eggs, and dairy.
