Healthy Foods, Healthy Families delivers interactive food and nutrition workshops at farmers markets for families that receive federal food assistance — WIC (Women, Infant, and Children) or SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Provided in English and Spanish, the program empowers parents and children with the tools to shop for affordable, seasonal foods and prepare them in healthy, kid-friendly ways. For each week of participation, families receive free samples, games, recipes, financial incentives, and other bonuses.

The 2019 season is funded in part by a generous grant from the Blue Angel Community Health Grant program of Blue Cross Blue Shield of RI, and by the Andrade-Faxon Charities for Children.
