Spanish Fork, UT – Tabitha’s Way Local Food Pantry South is excited to announce its new collaboration with the Utah Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) to increase access and bring locally grown, fresh produce directly into the hands of low-income seniors.
“Utah County is blessed with some of the most hardworking and dedicated farmers, and we are thrilled to collaborate with SFMNP to connect our local growers with seniors in need,” says Wendy Osborne, Executive Director of Tabitha’s Way Local Food Pantry. “We’re all in this together, and we believe this initiative strengthens our community ties and shows how much we care for one another.”
The SFMNP is an incentive program that provides $50 vouchers to eligible seniors to spend at authorized farmers markets statewide. Tabitha’s Way South will be accepting produce from local growers, ensuring proper storage, and distributing the fruits, vegetables, herbs, and honey to an estimated 3,000 low-income seniors. By working alongside the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) and WIC offices, this collaboration aims to make a significant positive impact on the health and well-being of Utah seniors.
Tabitha’s Way Local Food Pantry South is renowned for its compassionate, hands-on approach to addressing food insecurity and reinforcing the importance of community involvement. Through this collaboration with SFMNP, Tabitha’s Way South continues to foster connections that extend beyond putting food on the table, nurturing hope and a brighter future for our seniors.
