The Kansas Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program provides coupons to help 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.
Eligibility is determined by household size, but benefits are distributed individually, meaning any others in your household also meeting the age and income requirements may apply for and receive their own benefits.
Income Eligibility Guidelines, July 1, 2023 Through June 30, 2024
|Household Size||Annual Income||Monthly Income||Weekly Income|
|Each additional member||Plus $9,509||Plus $793||Plus $183|
How to Apply
Do not wait! Benefits are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. To complete an application, Contact the Local Distribution Agency in Your Area (PNG) between June 1 and September 15, 2023, or until benefits are gone, whichever happens first.
Should you apply after September 15, 2023, or you are told benefits are no longer available, you will be added to a waitlist and contacted if additional farmers market benefits become available.
If You Qualify
You will receive a booklet of 10, $5 coupons for a one-time annual benefit of $50 to purchase eligible foods from authorized farmers.
Follow these Coupon Use Instructions (PDF). Failure to follow these instructions may result in a loss of benefits.
