The Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program officially kicks off in our area on June 1. This is our fourth year of participation and we are excited to be able to offer qualifying seniors vouchers to shop for Missouri farm grown fruits, vegetables, herbs, and honey from local farmers. Qualifying seniors will receive $50 in vouchers to shop their local markets. This is a one-time offering for this year and seniors must meet income guidelines.  Vouchers must be redeemed by the end of October.

Call 417-862-0762 for times and days to sign up at our Springfield Administrative Office.

You must present the following items in order to be qualified:

• Proof of identity (drivers license)

• Proof of residency (utility bill or other bill showing address)

• Proof of income (Social Security benefit statement, pay stub, w-2, banking summary)
