We Did It! - Farmer's Market Nutrition Program Passes in Legislature

June 6, 2018 / News


Against all odds, just in the nick of time, HB1625 (Establishes the Missouri Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program to provide low-income seniors with fresh, Missouri-grown produce) was Truly Agreed and Finally Passed by the Missouri Legislature about 30 minutes before they adjourned for the year!

Thanks to all who made a final push to Kehoe's office to bring this to a vote.

Our senior advocates have worked faithfully on this issue for 3 years, and in a legislative year where many things have worked against us, this is a great way to end the session! We still need the Governor's signature, but it's very likely that will happen.
