Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)

The SFMNP, in collaboration with our transportation department, provides seniors transportation and vouchers to farmer’s markets across the island in an effort to increase community access to fresh, local food.

The Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program has reached maximum capacity for 2021 and is now closed to new applications.
