The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program is underway!

What is the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP)?  The Senior FMNP offers eligible low-income seniors (age 60 and older) the opportunity to purchase fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs from certified farmers.  The goals of the Senior FMNP are:

  • To provide fresh, nutritious, unprepared fruits, vegetables and herbs from farmers markets and roadside stands to low-income seniors, and
  • To increase the consumption of agricultural commodities by expanding or aiding the expansion of farmers markets and roadside stands

Who is Eligible?  An eligible person 1) is a resident of the county in which the voucher is being distributed (either Langlade, Lincoln or Wood), 2) is a senior age 60 or above, or Native American age 55 years or older and 3) has a monthly household income that meets program eligibility guidelines.

How Does the Program Work?  Enrolled seniors will receive $25 in vouchers for the household.  These vouchers may be used to purchase locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs at approved farmers markets or roadside stands.  These vouchers are good until October 31, 2020.

How Do I Get The Vouchers?  The number of vouchers is limited, so they will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.  Beginning on June 1st, eligible individuals may contact the ADRC-CW office by calling 888-486-9545, indicate their county of residence, and ask for the senior farmers’ market vouchers.  ADRC-CW staff will complete the voucher application by obtaining pertinent information and mail the application to the customer.  The customer will review the application information, sign, and mail the application back to the ADRC in the envelope provided.  Once the signed application is received, and if vouchers are still available,  the vouchers and educational information will be mailed to the customer.  No one is guaranteed a voucher until the signed application is received by the ADRC-CW.  If vouchers that are mailed are not received, the vouchers will be considered lost and will not be replaced.
