Currently 2 in 3 Kansans age 60 and older eat 1 or more servings of fruits each day and, 4 in 5 eat 1 or more servings of vegetables each day. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables daily helps reduce the risk of the leading causes of illness and death, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and obesity.
The Kansas Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program helps low-income seniors purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh herbs, and local honey at farmers markets, roadside stands and farm stores.
To qualify, you must be at least 60 years of age, or 55 years of age and a member of an Indian Tribal Organization, and meet the following income guidelines.
