Clearfield County, PA – Do you know someone 60 or older who wants some extra fruits and veggies this summer?

The Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Inc. and its partners are actively enrolling seniors in the Senior Farmer Market Nutrition Program food vouchers program.

This program provides eligible, older citizens of Pennsylvania with vouchers to purchase produce grown in Pennsylvania or produce that was purchased directly from a Pennsylvania farmer.

In Clearfield County, vouchers will be distributed starting June 10. Distribution will continue through September 30 or until all vouchers are distributed.

Four $5 vouchers will be distributed to Clearfield County individuals who are at least 60 years of age during 2019 and who meet income eligibility and residency requirements.

The income limit for this year is $23,107 for a single person and $31,284 for a married couple; $39,461 for 3 people and $47,638 for 4 people. Income means before deductions such as income taxes, Social Security Taxes, insurance premiums, charitable contributions, bonds, public assistance or welfare, payments etc. Identification showing date of birth and county (or town) of residency is required when vouchers are picked up.  A social security card is not a valid form of identification for this purpose.

Eligible individuals who cannot pick up their vouchers may name a proxy to pick these up for them by signing an authorized proxy form. Proxy forms will be available at all Clearfield County Centers for Active Living or on the Agency’s website (www.ccaaa.net). The form must be signed by the eligible individual prior to picking up the vouchers, and identification for both persons must be submitted by the proxy when applying for vouchers.

For more information and a complete schedule, call your local Center for Active Living or Alice Pollock at CCAAA at 814-765-2696 or 1-800-225-8571, or visit our website at www.ccaaa.net.

Programs and services of the Agency are funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Inc, Mature Resources Foundation, and local and consumer contributions.
