This is a free online training for market farmers who sell fruits and vegetables. Once you've participated in the training you will be eligible to accept FMNP vouchers, state funds that are distributed throughout the state of Iowa for WIC participants and senior citizens who need better access to healthy, fresh foods.
It's important that more local producers get certified to accept these vouchers because currently the redemption rate in our corner of the sate is very low... despite the need for fresh produce being very high.
This webinar training will take place from 5:30 to 6:45 PM, with 5 more dates this spring to tune in: March 29, April 13, May 10, May 24 and June 8.
