Our family centre participated in the 5% day organized by Whole Foods Market. On April 5th, 5% of their sales was donated to Vancouver Farmers Markets for the Nutrition Coupon Program.  Last year, thanks to the partnership, more than 40 Circles of Care and Connection families who came to Canada as refugees, were given nutrition coupons to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms and producers. The families always look forward to our field trips to farmers' markets which, as they often say:  "remind them of home".
