Senior Fruit and Vegetable Program (Kenosha)

 The 2017 season has concluded!

 

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 to receive one set of vouchers.
