Senior Farmer's Market Nutrition Program

Due to Covid-19, farmers market produce vouchers will be mailed directly to the home this year. As in prior years, each eligible person will be provided with four vouchers. However, for 2020 the value of each value has been increased to $6, allowing for a total benefit of $24 per person. Due to the social distancing practices necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, vouchers will be applied for, and distributed, as described in the SFMNP application packet.

Who We Are

The Bucks County Area Agency on Aging (AAA), one of 52 in Pennsylvania, is responsible for the planning and implementation of a variety of services and programs to assist older adults and their families.  We are organized as the local agent of the PA Department of Aging, whose broad goal is to provide comprehensive services to help adults age 60+ maintain independence in their homes and communities.  Our priority consumers are those with the greatest needs and fewest resources.

What We Do

The AAA offers more than twenty programs covering a wide range of needs.  For those who qualify, these services may include in-home personal care and support services; family caregiver support; transportation; home-delivered meals and adult day care.  Additional services include health insurance counseling, adult protective services, legal assistance, health promotion programs and ombudsman services.  Consumers may also call the AAA to inquire about eligibility for the PACE program (pharmaceutical assistance), as well as the Rent and Property Tax Rebate Program.

For More Information

The AAA also has a comprehensive Information and Referral department to answer questions and offer referrals to other agencies in the community that provide the specific services needed. General information is also available on aging issues through an "Aging Collection," available at Bucks County Libraries.
