The Wichita Falls Area Food Bank is now dishing out vouchers to qualifying seniors to get free produce at area farmers markets.

The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program started five years ago and provides seniors, ages 60 and older who meet income guidelines, with a voucher booklet.

That booklet contains five, $4 vouchers.

The vouchers typically arrive in June but food bank officials say because of delays they arrived this past Friday.

Seniors can contact the food bank for a voucher booklet.

And food bank officials say the vouchers are accepted at the farmers markets in Wichita Falls, Burkburnett and Vernon and must be redeemed by September 30th.
