The local farmers market is introducing a free, healthy incentive program for children called The Power of Produce (PoP) Club.
Each week, kids ages 4 to 12 receive a $2 token to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables from local growers.
The Park Rapids PoP Club is funded through a $1,000 grant from CHI St. Joseph’s Health and a $1,000 grant from the University of Minnesota Extension.
Developing healthy eating habits early in life has been shown to help in the fight against obesity and chronic disease, according to a PoP Club Toolkit created by the U of M Extension Family Development, Youth Development and Master Gardeners as well as the Minnesota Farmers Market Association.
