With the popular return of farm markets in Door County, qualifying seniors can begin applying for assistance in getting their fruits and vegetables. The Aging and Disability Resource Center of Door County is coordinating the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program, offering vouchers for low-income older adults to buy produce at Door County farm markets.
Each county gets alloted a certain number of $25 vouchers in June every year. Vendors will typically have signage to tell whether or not they take the vouchers. ADRC Assistant Director Jenny Fitzgerald notes that the only changes people may notice are annual income guidelines that can fluctuate. She adds that options to apply for the program in person or over the phone exist like they did last year, and the purpose of the program is still the same.
The program goes through October.
