County Executive John A. Olszewski Jr. delivered the Proposed FY23 Budget Message—Watch The Recording 

The Eating Together congregate meal program provides nutritious meals and companionship to Baltimore County seniors aged 60 and over and their spouses of any age. 

View the locations and days where the program is offered. For more information, call the Nutrition Office at 410-887-3052. In addition to the Eating Together meal program, senior centers offer special meals as part of social events. These meals are usually catered and have a fee.

Senior Farmers' Market Check Distribution

Apply for Checks Between June 27 and July 1

Beginning Monday, June 27, seniors can apply to receive a book of checks valued at $35 to use at participating farmers' markets in Maryland.  Applications will be accepted until Friday, July 1.  A lottery process will be used to distribute the checks. To be eligible for the lottery, residents must have an annual income below $23,828 for an individual or $32,227 for a two-person household. Only one book of checks will be distributed per household. Applicants will need to provide their name, address, telephone number, email address (if available), month and year of birth, ethnicity, and race when calling 410-887-0311 or filling out the online form to register.

Farmers’ Market Check Books are provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered in Maryland by the Maryland Department of Agriculture and Maryland Department of Aging. The purpose of the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) is to:

  1. Provide fresh, nutritious, locally grown fruits and vegetables from farmers’ markets to low-income seniors.
  2. Increase the domestic consumption of agricultural commodities by expanding or aiding in the expansion of domestic farmers’ markets.
  3. Develop or aid in the development of new farmers’ markets.

Learn where open farmers’ markets are located.

For additional questions or information, please call the BCDA Nutrition Office at 410-887-3052.
