Monticello, NY – The Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program provides an opportunity for eligible seniors to support local farmers and improve their health by increasing their consumption of locally grown fruits, vegetables and fresh-cut herbs.

“Studies show that consuming fresh fruits and vegetables can increase the quality of your diet and decrease your risk of hypertension, cancer and cardiovascular disease,” says Sullivan County Office for the Aging Nutrition Coordinator Jane Bozan.

To that end, the Office will be distributing Farmer’s Market Coupon Booklets beginning July 9. Each booklet contains five (5) $4 coupons, for a total of $20. Coupons are valid through November 30, 2021 at participating Farmer’s Markets.

Coupons are available to eligible seniors on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to take advantage of this program, you must be a New York State resident and 60 years of age or older. You must affirm that your income is no more than:

  • For a 1-person household - $1,986 a month; or
  • For a 2-person household - $2,686 a month; or
  • For a 3-person household - $3,386 a month; or
  • You are currently receiving or are eligible for SSI, public assistance, food stamps or Section 8 housing.

Pick up coupons at the Office for the Aging in the Government Center in Monticello between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or at the Transportation Building, 401 Airport Rd., Swan Lake, every Tuesday in July and August from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

For further information, please contact the Office at 845-807-0241.
