Feeding the Community
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and Senior Nutrition (SN) Farmers Market Programs
We work with the San Juan County Department of Health to double the amount of funds they are able to give to participants in the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and Senior Nutrition (SN) programs’ Farmers Market initiative.
The households spend the funds, in the form of Soroptibucks, on fresh, locally grown food in the Farmer’s Market and Food Hub. This program supplements food for households, while supporting our island farmers and the Farmers Market.
Nourish to Flourish
In 2021, SI of Friday Harbor provided a $5,000 grant to the Nourish to Flourish coalition of community organizations running volunteer programs to end hunger on San Juan Island. You can find more information about the organizations and programs at the website: www.nourishtoflourish.wa.org
