The New York State Farmers Market Nutrition Program provides coupons for low-income seniors. The coupons can be exchanged for locally grown fruit and vegetables at participating farmers markets in New York City.
Information about coupons for 2015 should be available in July.
Contact your local senior center now to see if they are participating, and if they have coupons or a waiting list. Because of the limited number of coupons, senior centers may restrict their supply to current members.
