Cumberland County announced Monday that Farmers Market Nutrition Vouchers are available for eligible seniors in Cumberland County ages 60 and older who fill out an application available through Cumberland County Aging and Community Services.

“Vouchers are available for our seniors but there is a limited supply,” Director of Aging Annie Huff said in a news release. “The nutrition vouchers can be used at any participating farmers market or stand to purchase fruits and vegetables grown in Pennsylvania.”

To be eligible, recipients must have turned 60 or older by Dec. 31, 2022, and have an annual income less than $25,142 for a one-person household and $33,874 for a two-person household.

The $24 nutrition vouchers can be used from June 1 through Nov. 30. For an application, contact Cumberland County Aging and Community Services at 717-240-6110, or get one online at www.ccpa.net/250/Meals-Food-Nutrition. Applications for this once-a-year program need to be submitted by Sept. 15, 2022.
