Representatives will be at 6 farmers markets in Sullivan County this weekend handing out FREE booklets of checks valued at $20 to qualifying seniors age 60 and over. No i.d. or paperwork is required, and most seniors meet the income guidelines. The checks are “Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program” (SFMNP) checks, and can be used on any fruits and vegetables at the farmers markets! Plus, the checks do not expire until November 30th, 2017. Can’t make it to the market this weekend? No worries! Pick up your checks any business day from the Sullivan County Office for the Aging in the Government Center at 100 North Street in Monticello.
