Emporia Farmers Market Recognized by ECKAN as a Community Partner

Ruthann Resch, EFM Board President; Julia Wilson, ECKAN Human Services Coordinator; Tracy Simmons, EFM Manager.


The Emporia Farmers Market was recognized at the ECKAN Annual Fellowship Dinner in November for their partnership with the organization in Lyon County. The market was able to provide $15 in market bucks to seniors who qualified for the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. These funds were in addition to the $30 seniors received from the federal program to purchase fresh and local produce.

One hundred seniors in Lyon County received coupons for market funds, totally $1,500 in food product from market vendors. Funds for this matching gift were provided by grant money from the Emil Babinger Charitable Trust, which supports the market in such matching endeavors.

Ruthann Resch, Emporia Farmers Market Board President, and Tracy Simmons, Emporia Farmers Market Manager, attended the dinner in Ottawa to accept the award. They were accompanied by Julia Wilson, ECKAN Human Services Coordinator in Lyon County.
