Vouchers for Veterans
Giving back to those who served
Vouchers for Veterans is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by Jeanne Grover in 2016. Along with friend Alicia Frye, they co-foundered the Rochester Farmers Market in Rochester, New Hampshire. It was out of their shared desire to find a way to give back to local Veterans in honor of their service, while providing a boost to local farmers, that Vouchers for Veterans became a reality.
The mission of Vouchers for Veterans is to thank Veterans living in New Hampshire
and Southern Maine for their service by providing them vouchers to purchase healthy,
nutritious food directly from the growers at local Farmers Markets.

STANDARD OPERATION PROCEDURE
We can show you how to get this kind of program going on in your community.
The Purpose: To create guidelines and procedures for maintaining the integrity of the Vouchers for Veterans Program
The Policy: To provide Veterans in New Hampshire and Southern Maine with vouchers to purchase produce, meats, and other items from growers at local farmers markets.
Our overall goal is to make this program more widely available to all Veterans.
Building on the success of our three-year pilot program held at the Rochester Farmers Market in Strafford County, Vouchers for Veterans has expanded into other counties.
The Farmers Markets chosen are determined by the market vendors ability to provide a large number of Veterans with fresh vegetables and meat without running short of supply. Also, Parking must be available on site or within an easy stroll, and the market must be handicap accessible.
