Project Fresh makes produce more accessible

Apples, peaches and blueberries are all Michigan-grown fruits that can be purchased at roadside stands with help from a state agency.
Through Project Fresh, mothers and children who receive WIC benefits can now pick
up their coupons and use them to purchase fresh produce at participating farmer’s markets.
Each qualifying participant can receive $20 in coupons that can be redeemed through Oct. 31. Families with more than one qualifying participant can receive up to $40 in coupons.
Coupons can be used anywhere the yellow, laminated Project Fresh poster is displayed. With these coupons, families can purchase a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs.
More information is available from the Three Rivers office by phoning 273-2161.
