The Farmer's Market Nutrition Coupon Program is a partnership between the BC Association of Farmers' Markets and the BC Government. The Program operates in 54 communities, where local farmers' markets partner with local organizations that work with the priority popluations that receive the coupons.

The BC Government aims to improve the health and well being of British Columbians at every stage of life. The BC Government helps British Columbians to better manage their own health and reduce chronic disease by focusing on four key areas: healthy eating, healthy lifestyles, resources for parents and fostering healthy communities.
