Project Description

Cowan Community Center

The food movement in the Cowan Creek community in rural Letcher County has taken off! The Letcher County Farmers Market began in 2013 and has since served families with fresh, locally grown produce. The Center also has begun hosting a series of canning workshop that draw sizeable crowds. Finally, partnering with Mountain Comprehensive Health Corporation, the Farmers Market operates a FARMacy program, in which patients with illnesses that can be aided nutritionally (diabetes, high blood pressure, etc) can receive a prescription for produce purchased at the market.
