[ARCHIVED] Senior Farm Market Nutritional Program (SFMNP)

The 2013 Senior Farmer Market Program provides eligible seniors with checks to purchase produce grown in Pennsylvania. This program which is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture provides eligible individuals four $5.00 checks to use at any participating Farmer's Market to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables. The checks can be used from June 1, 2013 until November 30, 2013.

To qualify for the program, participants must:
•Be age 60 or older (or age 60 before December 31, 2013)
•Be a resident of Westmoreland County
•Must not have already received checks at another sign-up this year
•Meet income guidelines
-$21,257 for a single person
-$28,694 for a married couple

Residents of Personal Care Homes, Domiciliary Care Homes and Convents are not eligible.

You must provide proof of age and residency when signing up for checks. Acceptable proofs of age include: PACE Card, PA Driver's License, Baptismal Certificate, Birth Certificate, or an AAA Transportation Card.

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 office. The form requires BOTH the signature of the senior and the individual picking up the checks; therefore, the proxy form needs completed prior to receiving the vouchers.
