Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program
Senior citizens (60 years of age and older) in Davidson, Dyer and Shelby counties who receive Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) foods also get SFMNP checks. Hamblen and Warren county seniors are also eligible to receive SFMNP checks.
The SFMNP uses the same guidelines as CSFP. Seniors must be a resident of the county and 60 years of age or older. They must have an income at or below 130% of the federal income poverty guidelines. The SFMNP gives eight $5 checks to about 14,000 seniors each year.
