Farmers market vouchers available
Lehigh County Office of Aging and Adult Service employees will distribute Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers to eligible senior citizens through the mail while supplies last.
The vouchers are available to Lehigh County residents 60 years or older whose total gross household income is within the income guidelines: $25,142 for a one-person household and $33,874 for a two-person household.
A one-person household is eligible to receive four $6 vouchers and a two-person household eight $6 vouchers one time only.
A list of local farmers markets where the vouchers may be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables can be found at pafmnp.org.
This program does not include seniors who are living in nursing home facilities, convents or residential facilities where meals are provided.
The vouchers will not be accepted at grocery stores and must be used by Nov. 30.
Farmers Market Vouchers will be mailed this year.
