Current Bill Summary

SB 525 - This act changes the Missouri Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program to the Missouri Farmers' Market Nutrition Program and expands the program to include low-income pregnant and postpartum women, infants, and children under 5 years of age who are at nutritional risk. Additionally, this act removes language in current statute permitting vouchers under the program to be used at roadside stands and community-supported programs (CSAs).

This act modifies voucher distribution to permit eligible individuals to receive program vouchers from distribution sites in their county of residence or a neighboring county.

This act is substantially similar to HB 652 (2021).
