Orange County vets eligible for Fresh Connect coupon program

GOSHEN – Orange County veterans are eligible this summer to participate in the state’s Veterans Fresh Connect coupon program.

Veterans, service members and their immediate family members are eligible for 10 Fresh Connect Checks valued at $2 each to use at some of the county’s farmers markets. There are more than a dozen summer farmer markets in the county.

The program is “a great way to help veterans and thank them for everything they have done for our country,” said County Executive Steven Neuhaus. “It is also a wonderful way to support the agricultural community.”

Vouchers may be picked up at the Goshen Farmers Market from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Friday, June 15 and Wednesday July 20; at the Cornwall Farmers Market from 11-3 on June 27 and July 25; and Monroe Museum Village Farmers Market from 9-3. on June 20 and July 18.
