Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)

Pathways to fresh produce for kupuna.

SFMNP reduces food costs for low-income seniors by providing produce vouchers for participating farmers markets islandwide.

The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program that improves access to fresh, local foods for seniors with limited incomes.

We do this by distributing vouchers to exchange for fresh produce at participating markets and roadside stands around the island.
