Farmer’s Market Coupons

Each year SCES requests Farmers Market coupons (through a grant) from the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources.

The number of coupons received by SCES depends upon funding available. SCES generally receives the coupons in July and distributes them to various senior housing, senior centers, and meal sites, and delivers fresh produce to a percentage of Home Delivered Meals clients.
