The Kansas Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (KS SFNMP) is providing low-income seniors with $30 of cash benefits for use during the 2012 harvest season.
ECKAN will begin accepting applications for SFMNP vouchers after May 14.
To apply for these vouchers in Emporia, contact Yvonne Johnson at Lyon County ECKAN. Phone: 620-342-4607. Lyon County ECKAN is located at 616 Merchant St, Emporia.
