BC Farmers Market Nutrition Coupon Program: Gabriola Participant Application
The Farmers’ Market Nutrition Coupon Program (FMNCP) is a healthy eating initiative that supports farmers’ markets and strengthens food security across British Columbia. Community partner organizations provide coupons to lower-income families and seniors participating in their food literacy programs. On Gabriola, the partnership is between the Gabriola Agricultural Association Co-op and People for a Healthy Community.

Coupons can be spent at all BCAFM member farmers’ markets that participate in the FMNCP, and can be used to purchase vegetables and some additional food items within criteria. Each household enrolled in the program is eligible to receive a minimum of $21/week in coupons for 16 weeks, beginning June 16th. Our participating market is the Saturday Farmers Market at the Agi Hall from 10am-1pm.

There will be opportunities for participants to take part in food literacy workshops, and there will also be an orientation for the program participants.

We are also supporting a paid research study component of the program through the Canadian Institute of Health Research, and if you are not selected for the initial program spots, you may have an opportunity to participate through the research study, with more details to come.

Please complete and return this application hard-copy to Kenda (Food Programs Coordinator) at People for a Healthy Community located at 675 North Rd., across from the elementary school. Or, alternatively, email to food@phcgabriola.org or fill out the online google form. Applications are due by May 28th. If there are still spots available applications will be accepted past the due date.

For questions or support with the application please reach out the Kenda:
