Market Kids is a 13-week camp based in Christiansburg that teaches local kids (ages 6-13) the importance of health and well-being. The kids learned to plant vegetables, learned about nutrition, took field trips, and sold the vegetables they planted at two local farmers markets. The program was awarded the John E. Dooley Student Engagement Grant of $1,500. Market Kids is a partnership between the New River Health District and the Virginia Tech Public Health program.
