About the event
The mission of the Bremerton Community Farmers Market’s Kids Market Bucks Club is to educate and encourage children to take part in their local food system, meet the farmers that grow their food, and understand the benefits of eating healthy, nutritious foods. This program will benefit children 3yrs – 12yrs old, with an emphasis on healthy eating and living activities. Each monthly activity will be different.
Participants visit the Kids Market Bucks booth the first Thursday of each month during the market season. They will each have a “Passport to Health” to log attendance and completion of each activity. There will be an extra prize given at the end of market season to those kids that have attended all 5 monthly activities. Passports are kept at the market so participants don’t have to remember to bring them back each week.
Kids are empowered to make healthier food choices on their own by having direct buying power with the market bucks. Through the activities provided monthly, they are exposed to healthier food options and healthier lifestyle behaviors which will provide them a solid foundation and enhance their food literacy.
Farmers benefit from the additional funds circulating at the market through the Kids Market Bucks Program.
