FARMERS’ MARKET CHECKBOOKS NOW AVAILABLE TO QUALIFYING SENIORS

Seniors Farmers Market Check book program

The Farmers’ Market Senior Nutrition Program is for eligible older adults on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE basis.  To be eligible, individuals must be 60 years of age or older AND have a monthly income at or below $1,926/month for a one person household or $2,607 for a two person household.   The check books will be distributed at the White Plains Community Center, located at 65 Mitchell Place, White Plains, NY on Monday, July 15 and Tuesday, July 16 from 9am to 4pm until supplies last.

The coupons are valid at any Participating New York State Farmers’ Market and locally the checkbooks can be used at the White Plains Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays, 8am – 4pm. The Farmers Market is located on Court Street (between Martine Ave. and Main St.)

Eligible seniors should participate only if they are planning to use the coupons at the participating markets. Each checkbook has a value of $20 and individual Farmers’ Market Checks are worth $4.00 each. Farmers will not give change. If a purchase is less than $4.00, farmers will add additional items of the recipient’s choice to make up the difference.

The Senior Farmers’ Market Program is funded through the Food and Nutrition Service division of the United States Department of Agriculture and Markets in cooperation with the NY State Office for the Aging, NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets and the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services.

For more information on the Farmers’ Market Coupons contact the White Plains Community Center at 914-422-1423.
