The Council on Aging has announced that farmer’s market coupons will be distributed from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday, July 22, at the Lenox Community Center.

These coupons are worth $25 and can be used to purchase food items at the local farmer’s markets. The coupons are valid through October 2014.

Applicants are required to be at least 60 years old and be eligible for or receive Food Stamps, SSI, Brown Bag, Mass Health, fuel assistance, or reside in public housing. Documented proof of eligibility must be presented at the time of coupon distribution.

Applicants must sign for the coupons, but proxy forms for those unable to attend are available at the Lenox COA office and are to be completed prior to July 22.

The distribution will be on a first come, first served basis, and van transportation is available by calling (413) 637-5535.
