Senior Project FRESH
The Senior Project FRESH/Market FRESH program is aimed at helping older adults eat healthier as they age.
The program provides participants free nutrition counseling and $20 in coupons that can be exchanged for fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods sold at local farmers markets and roadside stands.
Residents who are age 60 or older with a total household income of $22,459 or less for an individual or $30,451 for a couple are eligible to apply for the program.
Applicants must live in a county participating in the program.
If you think you are eligible and would like to participate in the program, please locate your lead agency here.
Commodity Food Program Updates
We hope this newsletter finds everyone safe and in good health. There have been many changes in our lives the last few months, and we thank you for your patience while we determine what our new normal looks like at commodity food distributions. We want to share a few important updates with you:
Robocalls—starting in July, robocalls will originate from a new phone number: 989-386-6849. If you return a call to this line, you will reach a recorded message that provides distribution dates for the current month.
