COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina residents over 60 might have the possibility to get free vegatables and fruits from approved farmers markets, roadside stands, and community-supported agriculture packages.
The South Carolina Division of Social Providers introduced Friday afternoon that the Senior Farmers’ Market Vitamin Program will return this summer season.
The purpose of this system is to complement the diets of low-income seniors with contemporary, nutritious produce and assist South Carolina’s small farmers.
Contributors obtain 5 checks of $5 to spend at approved places.
To qualify, South Carolina residents should be aged 60 or older with a yearly earnings of $23,832 or much less ($32,232 for 2 individuals), and have a legitimate driver’s license or state-issued ID.
This system shouldn’t be out there for residents of Bamberg, Berkeley, Greenwood, and Laurens counties.
Checks are distributed on a first-come, first-served foundation.
