Writing for The State Journal, Pam Kasey profiles the West Virginia Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program:
“The FMNP provides vouchers for two broad populations: low-income women who are pregnant or new moms and their children up to the age of 5, through the Women, Infants and Children, or WIC, program; and low-income seniors.
“WIC and senior FMNP participants usually receive the vouchers at a local WIC site or senior center, in the amount of $10 or $20 for each participant, according to Denise Eagan of the state Department of Health and Human Resources. DHHR coordinates the WIC program, while the state Department of Agriculture coordinates the seniors’ program.”
