Champaign-Urbana Public Health District Makes Eating Healthy A Little Easier

Champaign, IL - The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) issues approximately $40,000 worth of Farmer's Market vouchers each year. The vouchers are available to those who participate in the supplemental food program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). In August of 2008, CUPHD piloted a Farmer's Market program to better meet the needs of clients by providing a one-stop-shop with access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
