Squamish Farmers’ Market Nutrition and Coupon Program

Fresh thinking benefits Squamish families

About this story

Good Money™ means fresh food for families

How can we make locally grown food available to everyone – including people on limited budgets?

Thanks to a community project grant from Squamish Savings, more than 50 families participated in the Squamish Farmers’ Market Nutrition and Coupon Program last year. In addition to learning how to cook healthy, nutritious and low-cost meals for their families, participants received $15 in coupons to use at the Farmers’ Market each week.

The program is valued by the farmers – who appreciate the extra revenue – and the participants, who were able to purchase fresh produce, learn new cooking skills and connect with others in the community.

Good Money knows that good food can help families – and communities – grow stronger and healthier.
