Senior citizens are getting a little help when it comes to buying fresh produce.
Kanawha Valley Senior Services handed out $20 Farmer's Market coupon books to eligible seniors in both Kanawha and Putnam counties Tuesday.
Candidates must be 60 years or older and for a single person, your income must be less than $1,700 a month.
These vouchers can be used for fresh produce at the Capitol Market in Charleston.
"Twenty-dollars doesn't seem like a lot to many people who are working, but if you are on a fixed income like Social Security, Twenty dollars is a big boon," said Anna Stajduhar of Kanawha Valley Senior Services.
Vouchers were distributed until early Tuesday afternoon at Capitol Market and nutrition sites in Nitro, Sissonville and Dunbar.
