Each September, the Cheshire County Conservation District partners with local farmers' markets to celebrate Cheshire County Veterans!

 

Each weekend in September, Cheshire County Veterans can receive one $20 voucher to purchase food items from participating farmers' markets.

Veteran Appreciation
Month

Cheshire County Veterans receive a $20 each weekend at a farmers' market of their choice! The goal of this program is to show our gratitude and appreciation to service members for protecting our freedoms, and to expand markets for farmers.

 

What better way to show appreciation than through the gift of fresh, healthy food!?

 

This program in Cheshire County is not based on need, but rather serves as a way for our community to say “Thank you” to our local service members for protecting our freedoms. This program also serves to boost the local farm economy by bringing more business to our local markets – a win/win for the Veteran and the farmer!

How does it work?

 

It's simple! Vouchers are distributed each week at the market Veterans Booth and may be used to purchase food items only. Vouchers have no cash value, are non-transferable, and must be used by the end of September.

To get your voucher each week, simply bring proof of your Cheshire County residency and a valid form of Veteran ID.

 

Valid forms of ID include:

  • Copy of DD214

  • Veteran Healthcare card

  • "Choose VA" Veterans ID card

  • NH Driver's license with a Veterans designation

  • Retired military ID card

 

Veterans from these Cheshire County towns are eligible to participate: Alstead, Chesterfield, Dublin, Fitzwilliam, Gilsum, Harrisville, Hinsdale, Jaffrey, Keene, Marlborough, Marlow, Nelson, Richmond, Rindge, Roxbury, Stoddard, Sullivan, Surry, Swanzey, Troy, Walpole, Westmoreland, and Winchester
