Farmers MarKID

Children receive “Nourish Bucks” to taste, and shop for farm fresh produce…

Our mobile “Farmers MarKID” is a direct and hands on approach to improving the health of children in our community. We take free fresh fruits and vegetables to wherever kids need us: food deserts, parks, playgrounds, after school programs, high need schools, and other nonprofits.

At these MarKID’s children receive “Nourish Bucks” to taste, and shop for farm fresh produce. Each child receives 5-15 pounds of produce and a healthy recipe book so they can prepare the food at home with their family. NourishNC also invites community partners to share health education and fun activities with the children. Just mix 1 part fresh food, 1 part education, 1 part fun and you have the MarKID!
