Description

Program Description

The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides 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 (CSA) programs.

Program Requirements

The SFMNP is administered by State agencies such as State Department of Agriculture or Aging, and federally recognized Indian Tribal governments. Not all States operate the SFMNP statewide.

The SFMNP serves low-income seniors, generally defined as individuals who are at least 60 years old and who have household incomes of not more than 185 percent of the U.S.Poverty Guidelines (published each year by the Department of Health and Human Services). Some State agencies accept proof of participation or enrollment in another means-tested program, such as the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), for SFMNP eligibility.

Application Process

For more information about how to apply for SFMNP benefits, contact the State agency where you reside. A list of SFMNP State agencies can be found on the SFMNP State Agency contacts page.
