Senior Project FRESH
The Otsego County Commission on Aging, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging, MSU Extension, and the Farmers Market under the Pavilion at Court, offers a program targeted at bringing fresh locally-grown produce and nutritional information to the older adults of Otsego County. Known as Senior Project FRESH, the program offers a free coupon booklet to each qualifying participant which can be used to purchase unprocessed Michigan-grown produce at any of the farmers markets or roadside stands in Michigan that display a “Project FRESH” sign. Each coupon booklet contains ten $2.00 coupons. Each booklet is valued at $20.00.
Attn: Wanda Cherwinski, SPF Coordinator
Otsego County currently has one farmers market that has vendors who accept the Senior Project FRESH coupons.

New/Old Cookbooks Needed for Fundraiser!
OCCOA is accepting donations of new or used cookbooks to help raise additional funds for the program. Cookbooks may be dropped off to Market Master Sue Nowak at Homespun Antiques & Crafts on Main Street in Gaylord (next the Sugar Bowl) or at the OCCOA office, located at 120 Grandview Blvd. in Gaylord. The donated cookbooks will then be available for sale for $1.00 each at Sue Nowak's booth on market days.
You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients.
