Farmers Market Coupon Program
Winneshiek Medical Center offers Winneshiek County senior citizens free coupons, which are distributed in June, to be used at the Decorah farmers market each summer season. Participants receive coupons for locally grown fruits and vegetables.
The Winneshiek Medical Center Farmers Market Senior Nutrition Program is funded by The United Way of Winneshiek County, with participating vendors from the Decorah farmers market. The coupons can only be used for fruits and vegetables and may not be exchanged for money.
Recipients of these coupons must be Winneshiek County residents, age 65 and older, and bring proof of their residency and age to the distribution site. A WMC Farmers Market Senior Nutrition Program ID card or driver’s license are both acceptable identifying documents. If seniors received coupons the previous year, they are asked to bring their past WMC 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.
Call 563-382-2911 for more information on this program and for upcoming distribution information.
