Pennsylvania Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP)

Seniors who are 60+ years old during the program year and meet the income requirements are eligible for FMNP.  During the summer there are many farmers markets and produce stands that accept these checks as payment.

Income is total income including interest, Social Security wages, etc. Income is determined by household.  All members of the household are to be considered.

Each eligible senior may receive four $5.00 checks for a total of $20.00 one time during the program year.  A married couple is eligible to receive eight $5.00 checks for a total benefit of $40.00 one time during the program year. The FMNP checks will be distributed at the Kennett Area Senior Center Tuesday and Thursday afternoons this summer, from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM, and by appointment. Please contact Lizabeth Conners for more information at 610-444-4819.

The Chester County Department of Aging Services (CCDAS) provides the Pennsylvania Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) checks for distribution to eligible individuals age 60 and older.
