Seniors are invited this summer to participate in the Massachusetts Farmers Market Nutrition Program– hosted by SeniorCare Inc. and your local Council on Aging. Due to COVID-19, instead of issuing Farmers Market Coupons, Seniors will be provided with bags filled with a variety of fresh produce from local farms. Eligible seniors will receive two bags of fresh produce each valued at $12.50. The first bag will be distributed during the months of July or August. A second bag will be distributed in August or September approximately 14-30 days from receipt of the first bag for a total value of $25.00 in fresh produce.
To be eligible, participants must be 60 years of age or older and have a monthly income below $1,968.00 for one (1) person and $2,658.00 for two (2) people.
To register or for more information contact your local Council on Aging. (click here for list of participating Councils on Aging) Participation is limited and based on a first-come, first-served basis, per person.
