WSFNC Members Volunteer at Family Market Night

Elementary students and families will take a trip to the farmers market…right at school! The Eat Better, Feel Better program hosts Family Farmers Market Nights at Seattle Public Elementary Schools for students and their families to gather for an evening of great food, nutrition education and games, and prizes.

WSFNC Volunteers (aka "Farmers") sold fresh produce, like kale, sweet potatoes, apples, and lemon to students. Students practice their math skills by using play money to purchase real produce. At the end of the night, each family went home with a bag full of fresh fruits and vegetables to enjoy.

Please join us for our next volunteer experience:
Thursday, May 30th
