"Connecting local farmers to economically challenged children"
The Mission of Farm Fresh for Kids (FFFK) is twofold. First, we aim to help low-income, nutritionally at-risk children get started eating more fresh produce. We also want to promote small-scale sustainable farmers throughout Nevada. Specifically, this is done by providing coupons through the child’s doctor/nutritionist which are redeemable for free fresh fruits and vegetables at a local farmers’ market in the summer. This year, we have 4 clinics and 3 farms which have agreed to use our coupons.
We believe that every child has a right to a colorful, natural diet, with abundant fruits and vegetables, free from processed foods.
FFFK serves patients in the following areas:
Washoe County, NV - Reno, Sparks & Sun Valley
Carson City, NV - Carson City
Douglas County, NV - Gardnerville
Lyon County, NV - Dayton & Silver Springs
Clark County, NV - Las Vegas & North Las Vegas
