Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program

LAKE COUNTY, CA – July 19, 2023

This program enables seniors to purchase fruits, vegetables and other nutritious items with check booklets.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture teams up with California’s 33 Area Agencies on Aging to distribute check booklets to eligible seniors who will receive one booklet per year. Each booklet consists of 5 checks worth $10 each to be redeemed at certified farmers’ markets. Checks may be used to purchase fresh, nutritious, unprepared, locally grown fruits, vegetables, honey and cut herbs.

The program aims to increase low-income seniors’ consumption of agricultural commodities and encourages seniors to consider farmers’ markets as a regular source of wholesome nutrition. Approximately 370 certified farmers’ markets throughout the state have applied and been approved to participate in this program.
Seniors interested in participating in the program can find their local Area Agency on Aging by contacting Virginia Peeke at or via phone at (707) 995-4652. The list and other information about the Senior Farmers’ Nutrition Program are also available online at Supplies are limited and are on a first come basis.
