The OFA 2020 Summer Senior Picnics are taking place differently this summer - as a series of safe, socially-distanced "drive-thru picnics" planned for late July through early September. More details to come as they become available.
Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) Update:
Because of pandemic-related safety needs, we cannot distribute SFMNP coupons to walk-in visitors this year.
Distribution of SFMNP coupon booklets is happening on a drive-thru basis, only on the following days, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the OFA parking lot at 114 Delafield St. in Poughkeepsie.
When storms are in the weather forecast, please call ahead before leaving home.
Residents of low-income senior housing can find out more about obtaining SFMNP coupons from their residence manager.
Participants in OFA’s Senior Friendship Center program now receiving meals at home due to pandemic restrictions will receive SFMNP information from Friendship Center site managers.
