Starting June 1, farmers market nutrition vouchers will be mailed to eligible Cumberland County seniors 60 years of age and older who complete an application.
The nutrition vouchers, with a $24 total value, can be exchanged for Pennsylvania-grown fruits and vegetables from June 1 through Nov. 30 at participating farmers markets and roadside stands.
To be eligible, recipients must be 60 years of age or older by Dec. 31, 2020, and have an annual income less than $23,606 for a one-person household and $31,894 for a two-person household.
Proxy forms are not necessary this year with the written application process.
Please keep in mind these vouchers are available on a first-come, first-served basis, as funding is limited. Vouchers may only be obtained once per year.
For more information or to have an application mailed to you, contact Cumberland County Aging and Community Services at (717) 240-6110. The application with instructions will also be available to print at www.ccpa.net/119/aging-community-services after June 1.
