The South Carolina Department of Agriculture’s senior farmers market nutrition program is back, providing fresh local produce to low-income seniors.

For the first time, the program will be available in all 46 South Carolina counties.  All eligible seniors will have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, not just those in rural or urban areas.

Those ages 60 and older who are eligible will get $25 in vouchers that can be used at participating roadside stands and farmers markets now through the fall.

You can get more information and register on the South Carolina Department of Social Services website.
