Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program

This summer, the Lakewood Division of Aging will once again be participating in the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. This very popular program provides 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.

Participants must be Lakewood residents, and must be 60 years of age or older. The income guidelines are $22,459 or less for a single-person household, and $30,451 for a two-person household. Interested individuals must complete an SFMNP application form at either the Lawther Center, 16024 Madison Ave., or at Senior Center East, 12400 Madison Ave.

Names will be entered into a lottery drawing, which will be held at the Lawther Center on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, at 1 p.m. Participants need not be present to win. For those who are not selected on June 26th, 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.
