From March 1 through April 15, Rhode Island Seniors, age 60 and older, and income-eligible, can sign up to receive a free box of fresh produce with a value of $20 for the first round of the new bulk purchase program. Produce will be provided by local farmers and delivered by Farm Fresh Rhode Island to The Senior Center on a specified delivery day between May and August. Each box will also contain nutrition, recipe, and storage information provided by URI SNAP-Ed Nutrition Program for the produce received.
This program is replacing the Farmer’s Market Voucher Program.
Interested seniors may visit The Senior Center (25 St. Dominic Road, Wakefield) in person to sign up for this free box of fresh produce! Call 789-0268 with any questions.
