Free-Pop-up-Farmers-Market-1024x558

The Bayfield County Department of Human Services will once again be distributing the Wisconsin Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) vouchers to low income seniors beginning in June 2019. The goal of this program is to help seniors improve their diets with fresh produce while giving local farmers more business and adding support to the local economy. To be eligible for the program in Bayfield County, you must be a Bayfield County resident, 60 or older (55 or older if you are Native American), and at or below 185% of the Federal Poverty Limit (FPL). For a one- person household, 185% FPL is $1,926/month or $23,107/year.  For a two- person household, 185% FPL is $2,607/month or $31,284/year.  For each additional household member, add $682/month or $8,177/year.  Income is self-declared; you do not need to show verification of income. If eligible, you will receive one set of vouchers worth $25, with a limit of one set per household.  The vouchers are distributed on a first come first serve basis, and cannot be sent through the mail.  You need to show up at a distribution site in person or send a signed note with a friend or family member stating that you would like that person to pick up your vouchers for you.  That person will also need your address, phone number, and date of birth to complete the Eligibility Agreement form on your behalf.  For more information, please contact Karen Bodin, Bayfield County, at 715-373-6144 extension 115.
