CLEARFIELD – Vouchers for the Pennsylvania Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) continue to be made available to qualifying senior citizens in Clearfield County.

Vouchers are distributed once a year.   If you are 60 years of age and older, live in Clearfield County, and meet the income eligibility requirements ($21,590 for a single person and $29,101 for a married couple), you are eligible for the program.

Identification showing date of birth and county (or town) residency is required when vouchers are picked up.  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 are available at all county Centers for Active Living or on the agency’s Web site (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.
