Event Description

Virginia's Farm Market Fresh for Seniors (also known as the Senior Farmer's Market Nutrition Program) is available through Southern Area Agency on Aging (SAAA). Eligible seniors may receive $50 worth of vouchers to purchase locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, and cut herbs at participating Farmer’s Markets. The number of people who can participate is limited. 

BEGINNING ON TUESDAY APRIL 16, 2024 SAAA will take applications over the phone and in person. SAAA will also continue to take applications throughout the following week(s) while the supply of $50 booklets lasts. Applicants must be prepared to certify total gross monthly household income information when applying over the phone or in person

You may qualify to participate if:  
•    you are (or will become) 60 years of age or older on or before June 1, 2024, and
•    you are a resident of Danville City, Martinsville City, Franklin County, Patrick County, Henry County or Pittsylvania County, and 
•    you do not live with and are not an immediate family member of the farmer who grows the produce, and
•    you have a gross monthly household income that does not exceed the income requirements of the program. The income limit for this program has changed. Individuals who were not eligible in the past may be eligible now so we encourage all to apply.

Individuals and couples who wish to apply for vouchers must contact Southern Area Agency on Aging at 276-632-6442 or toll-free at 1-800-468-4571.
