Mangano Announces Fresh Produce Program For Seniors

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced a program in which income-eligible residents, age 60 and over, can receive a one-time (per family, per year) coupon book worth $20 to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at a local Farmers’ Market. The coupons are provided by the New York State Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program. They will be available at no cost after July 14th at easily accessible, convenient locations throughout Nassau County.

Farmers’ Markets are places where local farmers sell their produce directly to consumers, usually right off the trucks. The produce is seasonal, locally grown, fresh-picked and reasonably priced.

For more information on eligibility, when, and where to obtain the coupons, please call the Nassau County Office for the Aging at (516) 227-8919.
