Senior Farmers Market Vouchers were made available for pickup by the Counties late last week, and Calhoun was issued 175 vouchers at the Fairplains Distribution Center (Ripley). Each voucher has a value of $30.00 at designated Farmers Markets.

Calhoun County Committee on Aging [CCCOA] will distribute vouchers Wednesday through Friday (August 11 through 13) from 12:30 – 3:00 p.m. at the Grantsville Center and from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the West Fork Center.

Distribution tables will be located outdoors under each Center’s front porch.

We are mindful of the current rapid rise of COVID Delta Variant infections now occurring in West Virginia. Therefore, masks will be required at the distribution tables, and people desiring vouchers will be asked to stay in their cars and away from the distribution area until it is their turn.

A car line will form at the Grantsville Center by starting down Simon Street (on the left of the front of the Center), around the back briefly on River Street, and back up Stump Street; cars will turn from Stump Street to the parking spots in front of the Center as those spots become available.

At the West Fork Center, a line of cars will be formed in the Center’s front driveway and along Milo Road if necessary.

We greatly appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding that these procedures are for everyone’s safety and will allow everyone to participate, including those who are unvaccinated, those who have particularly risky health conditions, or those who still feel uncomfortable about public COVID risks.

The regulations we have been given require voucher recipients to meet the following requirements:
*Over 60 years of age, verifiable by driver’s license or acceptable means.
*One Voucher packet per household, according to physical address.

*Income must not exceed these weekly amounts according to household size:
Household of 1: $459
Household of 2: $620
Household of 3: $782
Household of 4 or more: $943

Income verification will not be required beyond responding to the question and affirming via signature.
