Senior Project FRESH/Market FRESH program is aimed at helping older adults eat healthier. Senior Project FRESH/Market FRESH gives coupon vouchers to eligible older adults to get Michigan-grown fruit, vegetables, herbs, spices and honey from farmers markets.
The program runs from May 1 to Oct. 31 each year.
To qualify, you must:
- Be at least 60 years old
- Applicants must live in a county participating in the program.
- Have a total household income of at or less than 185% of poverty
Along with the coupons, you will get information on healthy eating. You may get handouts, have a group class, or get referred to someone who can help you one-to-one. You will also get information on other places to get meals, food and other help if you need it.
