Collaborators and Community Funders

The Farmer's Market Nutrition Coupon Program is a partnership between the BC Association of Farmers' Markets, the Province of British Columbia and the Provincial Health Services Authority. The Program operates in 62 communities, where local farmers' markets partner with local organizations that work with the priority populations 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.

For more information about the BC Government's healthy eating initiatives, visit its website here.
