WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — The Wichita Falls Area Food Bank Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program opened May 1 and will run through September 30.

This program provides vouchers to local senior citizens and WIC participants to be used at participating Farmers’ Markets.

The program targets seniors and WIC participants because these groups are particularly vulnerable to food insecurity, sometimes having to choose between buying groceries and paying for other necessities such as medication or childcare.

These vouchers ensure that those in need have access to healthy and local produce.

We’re inviting seniors and WIC participants to sign up and collect their vouchers. The Wichita Falls Area Food Bank proudly sponsors this program.

There are several voucher pick up locations listed below.
