[ARCHIVED] Farmer's Market Vouchers Available

The 2015 Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program provides eligible seniors with vouchers to purchase produce grown in Pennsylvania. This program, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, provides four $5.00 vouchers to be used at participating Farmer’s Markets from June 1, 2015 until November 30, 2015. A list of participating Farmer’s Markets will be available at the sign-up sites. Applicants must bring proof of age and residency. Examples of proof are:

• Driver’s license
• Photo identification card
• AAA transportation card
• Birth certificate
• Utility receipts

Social Security and Medicare cards are not acceptable forms of identification.
Homebound individuals may have someone apply for them with the required documentation of age and residency, as well as a completed proxy form. The proxy form will be available at the sign-up sites and the Area Agency on Aging offices. The form requires both the signature of the senior and the individual picking up the vouchers; therefore, the proxy form needs completed prior to receiving the vouchers. Residents of personal care, domiciliary care homes and convents are not eligible.

You must be age 60 or older (as of December 31, 2015), a Westmoreland County resident, and meet income guidelines (up to $21,775 per year for a single person and $29,471 per year for a couple). Income for all individuals residing in a household must be considered. There is a one-time sign-up per season. The scheduled sign-up sites and times are listed below.
