Senior Project FRESH/Market FRESH
The Otsego County Commission on Aging, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging, MSU Extension, the Gaylord Downtown Development Authority, and the Gaylord Farmers' Cooperative offer a program targeted at bringing fresh locally-grown produce and nutritional information to the older adults of Otsego County. Known as Senior Project FRESH/Market FRESH (SPF/MF), the program offers a free coupon booklet to each qualifying participant that can be used to purchase unprocessed Michigan-grown produce at any of the farmers markets or roadside stands in Michigan that display a “Senior Project FRESH/Market FRESH” sign. Each coupon booklet contains ten $2.00 coupons. Each booklet is valued at $20.00.
