1. Seniors Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)

The Seniors Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides low-income seniors with eligible fresh produce with the goal of improving their health and nutritional status. Each SFMNP participant will receive a book of coupons worth $50.00 (ten $5.00 coupons) to exchange for fresh, nutritious, and unprocessed locally grown fruits, vegetables, herbs, and honey from an authorized farmer, farmers’ market, or roadside stand (outlet).

Applications for the SFMNP are available here or from the MEO planning and coordinating council senior coordinator Zilpah Kaimiola at Zilpah.Kaimiola@meoinc.org or at 243-4313.
