Mifflin-Juniata Regional Services is once again partnering with Pennsylvania’s Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) to provide low income seniors with fresh, nutritious, unprepared, locally grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs from approved farmers in Pennsylvania. Recipients will be given a list of participating farmers and farmers’ markets when they receive their checks.

Voucher distribution will be on Thursday, June 14, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the following locations: Moose Family Center, Country Crossroads Senior Community Center, Milroy Senior Center, Four Seasons Senior Community Center, and McAlisterville Senior Community Center.

Qualifying seniors must be 60 years old or older by December 31, 2018. Proof of Age is required. The following Household Income Guidelines are also in place: 1 person – $22,459 ; 2 people – $30,451 ; 3 people – $38,443 ; 4 people – $46,435 ; 5 people – $54,427 ; 6 people – $62,419.

Each eligible senior receives four (4) $5.00 checks for a total benefit of $20.00, once during the program year. Vouchers are redeemable through November 30, 2018. Seniors living in nursing home facilities, convents, or residential facilities where meals are provided are not eligible.

This year if you are picking up someone else’s checks for them, you must have a proxy form completed and signed in advance by the person for whom you are picking up the vouchers.
