ALACHUA COUNTY, FL – The Florida Department of Health Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) in North Central Florida is currently issuing their seasonal Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) coupons at all Alachua County WIC Clinics. The Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program provides eligible WIC participants with coupons to purchase locally grown, fresh Florida fruits and vegetables. Current clients may call to inquire about the coupons or schedule an appointment at the local number (352-225-4343) or the toll-free number (1-800-494-2543).
