It's time for the Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program. Please read below for important information on how to access the program.
SENIOR FARMER'S MARKET $50 COUPONS:
The Lake County Council on Aging will once again be a distribution agent for the Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP). The program provides limited income seniors with ten $5 coupons ($50) that can be exchanged for eligible foods at area farmers’ markets. To be eligible for this program you must be a Lake County resident, age 60 or older with a household income (from all sources) of less than $23,107 for a household of one, and $31,284 for a household of two.
THERE IS A NEW PROCESS FOR 2019 SO PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. This year SFMNP coupons will be distributed by a lottery (not first come, first served as in previous years) which will be drawn at 2:30pm on July 9th. Eligible seniors interested in applying for the program will need to submit a completed application to the Council on Aging office from July 1 through the close of business on July 8th. Applications will be reviewed and eligible applicants will be entered into the lottery. Applicants must show a valid Driver’s License or State ID at the time of application, and the address on the ID must match the application in order to be eligible. Applications will be available beginning July 1st at the Council on Aging office, on our website (www.lccoa.org) and at the local senior centers.
