Recent Farmers Market Was a Big Success!

Alta Head Start’s latest Farmers Market was held on April 10. The market provided an opportunity for Head Start students and their parents to purchase fresh produce using their “Alta Bucks.”

Families had 38 different fruits and vegetables to choose from. Each child received a shopping bag to use at the market. They also were able to take home a My Plate and various recipes using the produce they purchased.

YSU Nutrition students did a food demo at two of the markets. Families were able to try Asian Vegetable Noodles and fruit-flavored water at the Renaissance. At our McCartney location the YSU students did a hands-on demo allowing the children and their parents to make yogurt and fruit parfaits.

Many thanks to all the families for supporting our Farmers Markets!
