Market Basket of the Month was developed by WellSpan Community Health and Engagement to encourage everyone to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables! Market Basket of the Month features at least one fruit or vegetable each month and includes free resources.
- Collaborate with community partners to create repeated exposure of consistent messages about fruits and vegetables at multiple locations in the community.
- Increase knowledge of, familiarity with, and preference for a variety of fruits and vegetables.
- Encourage consumption of locally grown foods by connecting individuals and families to local farm markets.
WellSpan provides free monthly posters or signs with simple serving tips for the featured produce to a network of strategic partners – farmers’ markets, schools, libraries, community sites, worksites, food pantries and downtown corner stores. Individuals, organizations, and businesses are welcome to download, reproduce and distribute the monthly resources.
Be sure to visit monthly for new monthly recipes and newsletters!
To enjoy the flavor of farm fresh produce, save money and support local farming, consider shopping at a farm market near you.
