Fruit & Vegetable Vouchers Available

The York County Area Agency on Aging, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, is again offering the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program to eligible York County seniors.

This program provides $20 in vouchers to eligible seniors to buy fresh fruit and vegetables from participating local farm markets.

York County residents who are 60 years of age or older, and who have a 2012 total gross annual household income at or below $20,665 for a single person or $27,991 for a couple, are eligible to participate.

All income is included when calculating total gross income. Proof of age and York County residency must be shown to obtain vouchers.

A Farmers Market Proxy Form, along with proof of age and residency, is required for anyone picking up vouchers for another eligible individual. The Proxy form can be downloaded from the Forms & Documents page of the Agency on Aging’s website at www.ycaaa.org.

One individual may not pick up vouchers for more than four people.

Individuals are eligible to receive the vouchers only once per calendar year. The vouchers can be redeemed between June 1 and November 30.

Residents of nursing homes, personal care facilities or any residential setting that offer meals are ineligible to receive the vouchers.

Vouchers will be distributed at the following York County locations, or as long as the voucher supply lasts:
