WIC and Project Fresh

The WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP), also known as Project FRESH, provides eligible WIC participants with coupons to purchase locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables at local farmers' markets.  WIC participants receive these nutrition benefits in addition to their WIC food package and nutrition education.

The Project FRESH program supports locally grown food and the farmers that grow it.  Exploring local farmers' markets is also a fun family activity and is another way parents can teach their children about positive health habits that will last a lifetime.

Project Fresh

Project FRESH is only available once a year in the summertime.  Each spring you will be provided with information about whether your family is eligible for Project FRESH and what days they will be distributed.  This program partners with the Michigan Fitness Foundation, and local farmers' markets to promote healthy eating and fruit and vegetable consumption.
