Kenosha Senior Veggie Vouchers

 

 

 

Racine Kenosha Community Action Agency (RKCAA) administers the Senior Fruit and Vegetable Voucher Program in Kenosha County.
This program is funded through a grant from the Retirement Research Foundation and Kenosha County SHARES dollars. Through this funding, income eligible seniors are registered and provided $25 in vouchers to purchase locally grown fruits and vegetables at participating Farmer Markets and Farm stands in Kenosha County. Seniors must be at least 60 years of age and low-income to receive one set of vouchers.
