Veggie Vouchers

Racine Kenosha Community Action Agency (RKCAA) administers the Kenosha Senior Veggie Voucher Program. Through partnerships and various grants the program is changing the lives of seniors in Kenosha County. Funding allows eligible seniors to register and receive $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 considered low-income to receive one set of vouchers. To learn more about senior food security and the voucher program please watch the Senior Veggie video.

What You Need to Know

Building a community of support is our goal and our mission is to create funding streams to build an expansive program that includes all eligible Kenosha seniors that want to participate.

  • The Kenosha Senior Veggie Vouchers offer the opportunity for low-income 60+ year olds to purchase locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
  • One Veggie Voucher packet per senior is valued at $25 dollars, in $5 dollar increments. The Senior Veggie Vouchers cannot be used for non-food items; such as plants, ornamental corn or prepared items such as honey or salsa.
  • Look for signage on display at each farm stand to let you know Sr. Veggie Vouchers are accepted. If it is not visible, just ask and show them your vouchers.
  • Veggie Vouchers are non-transferable and only redeemed by the participant or a proxy.
  • The Kenosha Senior Veggie Vouchers are valid June 1st through October 31st. They cannot be redeemed beyond October 31st. Visit the RKCAA Teaching Kitchen to sample and receive recipes featuring locally grown fruit and vegetables, share tips with other seniors and young families.
