Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)

The 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 testing (ex: Renter Rebate) to verify income. Each eligible participant receives one (1) $18 check booklet annually containing six (6) three dollar ($3) checks.   SFMNP checks can be redeemed at FMNP authorized locations throughout Connecticut for fruits, vegetables, fresh cut herbs, and honey.

SFMNP check booklets are issued by the agency to municipal agents, elderly services nonprofits, or senior centers for distribution to eligible participants. Please take a look at the 2018 Senior FMNP Distribution Sites to find a location. CT DoAg cannot send SFMNP checks to individuals.
