Eligible WIC families can enjoy locally grown fruits and vegetables with special checks that you can spend on produce at farmers markets and farm stands.

To get checks this year, sign up for a time to pick them up at your WIC clinic. Just call or text us your preferred pick up day and time (AM or PM). Get them before we run out! 

The Farm Direct Nutrition Program runs yearly in the summertime beginning in June. You must use your checks by November 30.
