Farmer Market Vouchers
The Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program will be offered again this year to eligible Jefferson County Seniors. This program is made possible through the PA Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Food Distribution. Jefferson County Area Agency on Aging will be administering the program starting June 1, 2021. This program provides $24.00 in vouchers free to eligible older adults. The purpose is to encourage older consumers to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables by local growers who make their produce available at farmer’s markets.
Health experts recommend eating five or more fruits and vegetables every day for better health. This program does not only benefit the seniors, but it benefits the farmers as well. Good nutrition is a critical factor in the health and wellbeing of senior citizens.
