South Perry represented in Olympia

Brian Estes is headed to Olympia to testify before the State Ways and Means Committee, in an effort to preserve funding for WIC's farmers market's program. Womens Infants and Childrens program was one of the first programs that made it possible for low-income mothers to access healthy, local food at farmers markets, Estes said. WIC is facing budget cuts as the state attempts to balance its budget. Estes is the chair of the South Perry Farmers Market. He's getting a solid endorsement from SPBNA and encouraging neighbors to call Senator Lisa Brown's office at (360) 786-7604 in support of the WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program.

On a side note, Hi-Co Market is carrying more and more fresh produce and considering becoming part of the Health District's “Healthy Corner Store” program.

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
