Wednesday, August 12, 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm Fernley Pool, 300 Cottonwood Lane, Fernley, NV.
The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program, Inc. (RSVP) has free Farmers Market coupons for Lyon County low-income seniors through the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP).
Coupon booklets will be distributed at the Fernley Pool located at 300 Cottonwood Lane, Fernley. All volunteers and staff will be wearing masks. Recipients will need to wear a mask when signing for and receiving their coupon books. If they do not have a mask, one will be provided by RSVP.
Each senior can receive only 1 coupon booklet per season per household and must meet income and residence guidelines. Each coupon book contains 18 – $2.00 coupons for a total of $36.00. Coupons may be used at any Nevada Farmers Market displaying the appropriate signage. Once the booklets are claimed, they cannot be replaced if lost or damaged.
You will need to present a Nevada ID or a Nevada Driver’s License showing a Lyon County residence in order to receive coupons and must sign the self-certification form at the distribution site. The driver’s license will not be physically handled. Each individual will sign a one-page form indicating that they qualify to receive the coupons. For your safety, the clipboard and pen will be sanitized following each use. Non-senior friends or family members may pick up the coupon booklet for a homebound senior but will need to have the senior’s identification and a note authorizing them to receive the coupons.
