Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)
The Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) awards grants to States, U.S. Territories, and federally recognized Indian tribal governments to provide low-income seniors with coupons that can be exchanged for eligible foods (fruits, vegetables, honey, and fresh-cut herbs) at farmers' markets, roadside stands, and community-supported agriculture programs.
On May 25th, the Southern Satellite Office of the Lorain County Office on Aging held their annual distribution of Senior Coupons to local residents. 100 people received $50 in coupons that can be used at licensed Lorain County farm markets.
