The Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program is a “win-win” program that benefits low-income seniors and local farmers! Local farmers sell more produce, and seniors who otherwise could not afford it can purchase organic, fresh fruits and vegetables as excellent supplementation to a healthy diet.
- A list of participating authorized farmer’s markets and farm stores will be posted when available, and a list will be included with the mailings of vouchers.
- Eligible low-income seniors will receive $40 worth of vouchers to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at authorized farmer’s markets.
Who Is Eligible? Need to meet all three criteria:
- Island County resident
- Age: 60+ for non-Native Americans, 55+ for Native Americans
- Income: Up to $2,096/ month for 1 person, up to $2,823/month for 2 people. For larger households, add $728 per person
