PoP Club at the Market
Introducing Power of Produce Club (PoP Club), thanks to the growing support of Arizona Federal Credit Union, PoP Club is launching October 2019. Our organization is delighted to announce a two-year sponsorship with Arizona Federal Credit Union. The partnership is part of Arizona Federal’s ongoing commitment to Arizona’s economy and support of local, small business.
Fun weekly activities, ranging from cooking demonstrations to seed planting, provide nutrition, food, agriculture, and exercise education to the children and families that participate. Kids can also enjoy imaginative play, coloring, crafts and story time each week at the market.
PoP Club is a farmers market incentive program for children ages 4-12. Each week, market kids can earn a stamp in their passport for participating in PoP Club activities. For every four stamps earned, children receive a $2 Market Buck to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables. PoP Club engages children at the farmers market and empowers them to make healthy food choices.
PoP Club seeks to teach children about fruits and vegetables, local food systems, and healthy food preparation. Participants engage in the full farmers market experience by tasting new foods, having conversations with farmers, and learning about local produce. PoP Club kids are encouraged to try new healthy foods and overcome picky eating through exposure to healthy food options in an exciting environment.
