The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program, administered by the Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship in cooperation with the Iowa Department on Aging, provides eligible older adults (60 years or older) with a booklet of checks that can be spent at participating farmers’ markets and roadside stands. Each participant receives ten $5 checks for a total one-time benefit of $50, and these can be used to purchase fresh Iowa grown fruits, vegetables, herbs, and honey. Participants must live in the service area of Milestones Area Agency on Aging, and must have a yearly income below $26,973 if single or $36,482 for a household of two.
Participants who receiver coupons last year will automatically receive a 2023 application. To receive an application, please call Milestones at 855 410 6222.
