WIC Farmer's Market Nutrition Program

WIC Farmer's Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) is associated with the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, popularly known as WIC under the Child Nutrition Act of 1966. The Guam Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) mission is two-fold: 1) to increase the awareness of nutritional value, and promote the use and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables; and 2) to promote the use and availability of farmers’ markets on the island. In Guam, each WIC participant receives $20 worth of coupons per year during the growing season which runs April through September.
