General Information
Description of ServiceThis program was established in 2002 by the Federal and State Dept. of Agriculture to assist seniors in obtaining fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables and to increase sales and awareness of the farmers markets in the local area. In collaboration with Area Agency on Aging, the vouchers are distributed to eligible seniors statewide.

A person is not eligible if he/she resides in a nursing home, convent or residential facility where meals are prepared.
The eligible senior receives four $5 vouchers that can only be redeemed at a local farmers stand who is a participant of the program. Only Pennsylvania grown fresh fruits and vegetables can be bought with the vouchers; baked goods, apple cider, dairy products, jams, and meats are not allowable. Each senior can only receive one set of four vouchers a year.
A representative can pick up vouchers for an eligible senior as long as they have a signed and completed proxy form. The representative must bring some form of ID. Anyone with Power of Attorney must also have a proxy form completed and signed when picking up vouchers for eligible senior. A husband/wife must have the proxy form completed and signed when picking up vouchers for spouse.
