Food and Nutrition Education in Communities promotes positive nutrition practices, encouraging wise use of personal and environmental resources, securing access to nutritious and safe food, and fostering food secure communities through research- and issue-based programming with a focus on low-income individuals and families.

The Farmers Market Nutrition Program includes both the WIC Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) and the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP).

This program gives eligible, pregnant or nursing mothers, infants and children enrolled in the NYS Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), checks worth $4 each to buy produce at farmers’ markets.

The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides seniors with checks worth $4 each to buy produce at farmers’ markets. Eligibility is based on age and income; participants must be 60 years or older and have an income less than or equal to 185% of the federal poverty level. Senior citizens interested in the SFMNP should contact their local Office for the Aging.
