There are still some Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program Checks Available

The Kansas Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (KS SFMNP) is providing low-income seniors with $30 of cash benefits for use during the 2011 harvest season.

There are still some of these vouchers available in Emporia. To apply for and receive your vouchers, please contact Lyon county ECKAN. Phone 620-342-4607.

SFMNP vouchers may be used to purchase local, fresh produce at farmers markets, roadside stands and community supported agriculture (CSA) programs. They must be redeemed between May 1 and October 15.

Emporia Farmers Market vendors who are certified to accept SFMNP checks will display a poster at their stall stating "Kansas Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program Checks Accepted Here."
