The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) is a supplemental food program for individuals over the age of 60 or those who are disabled living in housing where congregate nutrition services are provided and meet income eligibility. Participants must be enrolled in another program with proper means of testing (ex: Renter Rebate) to verify income. Each eligible participant receives one $18 check booklet annually containing six $3 checks. SFMNP checks can be redeemed at FMNP-authorized locations throughout Connecticut for fruits, vegetables, fresh-cut herbs, and honey.
The Town typically receives the booklets in the early summer for distribution to residents.
Please contact the Social Services office at 860-434-1605, ext. 228 to request a booklet if you are income eligible.
