Current Bill Summary


SCS/SB 787 - This act establishes the Missouri Senior Farmers' Market Nutritional Program by requiring the Department of Agriculture to apply for a federal grant to provide low-income seniors with vouchers that may be exchanged for eligible foods at farmers' markets, roadside stands, and community-supported agriculture programs. Eligible seniors shall receive vouchers from designated distribution sites in their counties of residence and also be provided with a list of participating farmers, farmers' markets, roadside stands, and community-supported programs.

This act is substantially similar to the truly agreed to and finally passed HB 1625 (2018), SB 373 (2017), HB 327 (2017), and HB 2331 (2016) and similar to SB 332 (2015) and HB 154 (2015).
