The ADRC will be accepting completed eligibility agreements directly from clients and/or their proxies via US mail or fax. Once the completed agreement is received, the ADRC will mail the farmers’ market vouchers directly to clients. For community distribution events, the participant or authorized representative must visit the distribution site in person to receive the vouchers. A proxy can represent up to ten individuals and must provide a signed statement from the eligible senior designating the individual as his/her authorized representative. The proxy must also have the full name, address, phone number and date of birth of the eligible senior to complete the application.

The ADRC will distribute the Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program vouchers throughout the county (schedule on Page 2). Please call the ADRC at (262)548-7848 for additional information on distribution dates, times and locations. Dates and times subject to change without notice.
