The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP)
The Senior FMNP offers eligible low-income seniors (age 60 & older) the opportunity to purchase fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables and herbs from certified farmers.
Who is Eligible?
Wood County residents, 60 years of age or above, (or Native American age 55 years or above), with a monthly household income that meets program eligibility guidelines.
How Does the Program Work?
Enrolled seniors will receive vouchers for the household.
These vouchers may be used to purchase locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs at approved farmers’ markets or roadside stands.
How Do I Get These Vouchers?
Distribution sites are confirmed by the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Central Wisconsin.
The number of vouchers is limited, so they will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
Applicants may be required to provide proof of age and household income.
How Do I Get Vouchers If I Can’t Come to a Distribution Site?
If you are homebound, or unable to get to a distribution site due to a disability, you may send a signed statement with your authorized representative stating this person has been designated to apply for certification on your behalf or request a standard proxy form from the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Central Wisconsin.
Your representative will be required to provide information regarding your date of birth, address, phone number, and your income, and this cannot be done until AFTER JUNE 1st.
