The Mukilteo School District, in partnership with WSU Extension Food $ense and the Everett Farmers Market to host a Family Farmers Market Night at Challenger Elementary School on September 17, from 4:30-6:30pm. The goal is to increase access to healthy foods among students and families who qualify for SNAP (food stamp) benefits, by introducing our local farmers markets as a great place to shop for healthy foods using SNAP/EBT cards.
At the event, families will have a chance to shop for fresh fruits & vegetables from local farmers. There will be fun for the whole family with activities with YMCA and 4-H, face painting with Mari’s Place, free food samples and recipes to take home. The first 100 kids will get $3 in tokens to spend on fruits & veggies!
