Winneshiek Medical Center is offering Winneshiek County senior citizens free coupons to be used at the Decorah Area Farmers Market this season. Participants will receive $10 in coupons for locally grown fruits and vegetables.
The coupons will be distributed from 3:00 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Decorah Area Farmers Market, in the lower Co-op parking lot across from the Post Office, and from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at the Decorah Senior Center at 806 River Street in Decorah.
The Winneshiek Medical Center Farmers Market Senior Nutrition Program is funded by The United Way of Winneshiek County, with participating vendors from the Decorah Area Farmers Market. The coupons can only be used for fruits and vegetables and may not be exchanged for money. A limited number of coupons are available and they will be distributed until they are gone.
Coupon recipients must be Winneshiek County residents and age 65 or older (bring proof of residency and age to the distribution site). A Winneshiek Medical Center Farmers Market Senior Nutrition Program ID card or driver's license are both acceptable identifying documents. If seniors received 2017 coupons, they are asked to bring their yellow Winneshiek Medical Center Farmers Market Senior Nutrition Program ID card to help coordinators evaluate the success of the program. There are no income guidelines to participate in this program.
