In cooperation with the Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will provide viewing for the Farmers Market Nutrition Program 2019 webinar training for new and returning farmers market vendors March 28 or April 11. The webinar training will be able to be viewed at many Iowa State University Extension and Outreach county offices. This viewing option is for individuals who may not have Internet service or who may experience Internet service issues.
The Iowa Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) consists of the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) FMNP and the Senior FMNP. The FMNPs are Congressionally-authorized programs that provide fresh, nutritious, unprepared, locally grown fruits, vegetables and herbs from farmers markets and farm stands to nutritionally at-risk women, infants, children and low-income seniors.
The Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship does not limit the number of vendors who may become certified under FMNP. For more information and eligibility, visit www.iowaagriculture.gov, Marketing, Horticulture and Farmers Markets.
