The Resource Fairs consist of community agencies and organizations available to assist seniors and/or their caregivers with information and resources. Participants can ask questions and receive valuable information to improve their quality of life and handle various situations related to aging. 

The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) was established in 2001 and provides eligible seniors with food vouchers to purchase fresh, “Georgia-grown” fruits and vegetables. Authorized farmers sell their fresh fruits and vegetables on-site in exchange for food vouchers from eligible SFMNP participants. Benefits may only be issued one (1) time to participants during a market season. All SFMNP participants must be a Georgia resident, 60+ years old at the time of the market and income eligible. SFMNP participants must complete a registration form with income verification of not more than 185% of the federal poverty guidelines. When a registered senior or his/her designated proxy arrives at a market site, he/ she will receive food vouchers valued at $50.00 per person to purchase their fresh produce. 

Participants can call 229-432-0994, Option 3 to see if they qualify and to pre-register, or participants can register on-site the day of the market.
