Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program
The Oklahoma Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides a $50 EBT debit card to eligible seniors. This card can only be used to purchase locally grown produce, raw honey, and fresh-cut herbs.
In 2022, Oklahoma moved the SFMNP participant application online. This update is intended to improve service to our seniors and allow recruiters to provide real-time updates on an applicant’s status. Seniors can apply for the program at oksfmnp.org
Each county with a participating farmers market or farm stand will have a designated recruiter or recruitment team to assist seniors in the application process.
