COA offers fresh produce program

The St. Joseph County Commission on Aging is participating in the Senior Project FRESH/Market FRESH, which provides older adults with unprocessed, Michigan-grown products from authorized farmers markets and roadside stands throughout the state.
Qualified older adults receive coupons that are used to purchase Michigan-grown produce at registered roadside stands and farmers markets. Eligible items include berries, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, beans and honey.
Participants must be at least 60 years old, live in St. Joseph County and meet income-eligibility requirements.
The coupons are like money at farmers markets or roadside stands that have a sign reading: “Senior Project Fresh/Market Fresh Welcome Here.”
Further information is available by phoning the Commission on Aging at 279-8083.
