Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program has been eliminated!

Attention all Seniors:

I just received an email from Connecticut’s Department of Agriculture.  The email stated that because Connecticut’s General Assembly did not pass the state budget as of July 1, 2017, funding for the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program has been eliminated.  Therefore, there will be no further distribution of coupon booklets.  Unfortunately, for all coupon booklets that have already been distributed, please note that they will not be honored at any Farmers’ Market.   This is very disturbing and if there are any changes, I will let you know.   Please call me with any questions, at 860-554-5246.  Thank you.  Eleanor Farrell, Municipal Agent for the Elderly
