Winneshiek Medical Center offers produce coupons to Winneshiek County seniors
Winneshiek Medical Center is offering Winneshiek County senior citizens free coupons to be used at the Decorah Area Farmers Market this season. Participants will receive $10 in 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 Area 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 driver’s license or the yellow 2021 WMC farmers market ID are both acceptable. There are no income guidelines to participate in this program.
The coupons will be distributed on the following dates:
- Wednesday, June 8, 3:00 – 4:30 pm – Decorah Farmers Market (399 Heivly Street)
- Thursday, June 9, 10:00 – 11:30 am – Decorah Senior Center (806 River Street)
- Monday, June 20, 11:00am – 12:00 pm – Decorah Senior Center (806 River Street)
Note: At this time these are the only dates/times for distribution. If there are extra coupons remaining we will have another distribution date later in the summer. Coupons will not be mailed out.
