(Newton, N.J., June 27, 2007)  The Sussex County Division of Senior Services has vouchers available for eligible seniors to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at participating farm stands.  Seniors must complete an application and provide proof of eligibility.  Seniors must be Sussex County residents who are 60 years of age or older and meet the following income guidelines:
