SENIOR FARMERS MARKET NUTRITION PROGRAM
Fruit and Vegetable Vouchers Available by Mail
The York County Area Agency on Aging, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, is again offering the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program to eligible York County seniors by mail.
This program provides $24 in vouchers to eligible seniors to buy fresh fruit and vegetables from participating local farm markets.
York County residents are eligible to participate if they are 60 years of age or older by December 31, 2021, and have a 2021 total gross annual household income at or below $23,828 for a single person, or $32,227 for a two person household.
All income is included when calculating total gross income. A two person household may each receive vouchers if their combined total income is within the income requirements.
An application must be completed in order to receive the vouchers. Applications can be obtained by downloading it from www.ycaaa.org, by email at email@example.com, by calling the office at 717-771-9610, or by contacting your local Senior Center. Anyone requiring further information should contact the York County Area Agency on Aging at 717-771-9610.
Individuals are eligible to receive the vouchers only once per calendar year. The vouchers can be redeemed between June 1 and November 30, on fruits and vegetables grown in Pennsylvania.
Residents of nursing homes, personal care homes or any residential facility where meals are provided are not eligible to receive vouchers.
