5/8/2024 - Cumberland County Office on Aging Announces Program to Provide Free Produce for Senior Citizens

The Cumberland County Office on Aging is pleased to announce that through a grant with the N.J. Department of Health, the Office on Aging is processing applications and providing benefits for the USDA Senior Citizens Farmers Market Nutrition Program.  

The Senior Citizens Farmers Market Nutrition Program gives seniors the opportunity to purchase locally grown fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs from authorized farmers.  In addition, it provides seniors with useful nutritional information, and helps to ensure good health.

Eligible seniors must apply for the Farmers Market Coupons in the County in which they reside.  They will receive $50 worth of benefits to purchase Jersey Fresh items at eligible farmer markets.  Seniors must be age 60 or older and a resident of Cumberland County.  Income guidelines have been established at 185% of the Federal Poverty Level.  A household of one can have a monthly gross income of up to $2,322 and household of two can have a monthly gross income of up to $3,152.  Additional guidelines for families of three or more are available.  To apply, you will need to provide proof of age, proof of residence, and proof of your 2024 income (or a Medicaid or SNAP card).

Applications are being accepted and distribution of the benefit will begin starting May 13, 2024.  This program is available on a first-come first served basis and supplies are limited.  The deadline to apply is September 30, 2024.  The benefit will be issued in the form of a gift card with a QR code to track the spending balance.
