Thursday, August 27, 9:00 am – 11:00 am RSVP Office, 2621 Northgate Lane, Suite 6, Carson City.
The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program, Inc. (RSVP) has free Farmers Market coupons for Carson City low-income seniors through the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP).
Beginning August 13th, on every Thursday and Friday thereafter during the month of August, Farmers Market Coupons will be distributed at the RSVP office in Carson City from 9am to 11am, or until coupons are gone. The RSVP office is located at 2621 Northgate Lane, Suite 6. A table will be set up just outside the main door office entrance for safety and convenience.
All volunteers and staff will be wearing masks. Recipients will need to wear a mask when signing for and receiving their coupon books. If there is a line, you must maintain social distancing guidelines of six feet between each person. If you 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 which can be used at the Carson City Farmers Market. The market is open every Saturday from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm at 3rd & Curry St. or coupons may be used at any other 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 Carson City 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.
