Farmers Market Coupon Lottery At The Lawther Center

The Lakewood Division of Aging and the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging are pleased to announce that the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program is once again to be offered in 2017. The SFMNP program will provide selected eligible seniors with $50 in coupons which can be used for fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables at any of the local farmers markets.

There are eligibility requirements for this program. Participants must be 60 years of age or older. They must be Lakewood residents, and they must fall within the income guidelines. The guidelines are as follows: $22,311 or less for a single-person household, or $30,044 for a two-person household.

Interested individuals must complete an application form at either the Lawther Center, 16024 Madison Ave. or Senior Center East, 12400 Madison Ave. The names of all interested participants will be entered into a lottery drawing, which will be held at the Lawther Center on Friday, July 7th, at 12:30 p.m. Participants need not be present to win. For those who are not selected on July 7th, their names will be kept in the event that additional coupon sets become available later in the summer. Please call the Division of Aging Activities Office at 216-529-5005 with any other questions or concerns.
