Our Promotoras continue to educate our population by increasing their knowledge of healthy eating and in turn empowering positive changes in community health indicators. In part, this work is done at area farmer’s markets where Promotoras offer tours and teach families about healthier eating on a budget. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits can be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables and in fact double in value at many area farmer’s markets.
On Saturday August 27th, our Promotoras will be on hand to help families at the Overland Park Farmer’s in downtown Overland Park from 10:00am-12:00pm. Stop by, say hello and take home some fresh fruits and vegetables of your own.
