Senior Project Fresh

Senior Project Fresh provides $25 coupon books to eligible Macomb County residents who are 60 years and older who meet income limitations. Coupons are used to purchase fresh produce from participating farmers markets, farm stands and farmers.

What is Senior Project Fresh?

The Senior Project Fresh program is aimed at helping older adults eat healthier as they age.

The program provides participants free nutrition education and $25 in coupons that can be exchanged for fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods sold at local farmers’ markets and roadside stands. The coupon works like cash as payment for the products. For a list of eligible coupon items, click here.

Coupons cannot be used for items that are not typically grown in Michigan, such as bananas, oranges, and pineapples. They also may not be used to purchase cheese, meat, or eggs, even though some of these are good sources of nutrition, nor may they be used to purchase flowers or potted plants.

Applicants must live in the county where coupons are obtained. The program runs from May 1 to October 31 each year.

Limit one coupon book, per person.  There are a limited number of coupon books available for distribution.
