Skylar Young, PCA special projects coordinator, said another change is the value of the vouchers. This time around, they're worth $24, which is more than last year.
“They can use these vouchers at farmers markets around the city, and when we send out the vouchers to them, they will also come with a market list broken up by neighborhood in the city,” Young explained. “It will be easy to find a location near them that will accept them.”
The vouchers are funded by the U.S Department of Agriculture and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.
In 2019, the program served more than 35,000 Philadelphia seniors. Interested seniors who are new and eligible for the program can apply for the vouchers by calling the PCA at 215-765-9040. You can also email PCA at email@example.com.
