Office for the Aging helps seniors eat healthier

Senior citizens from the Peter Chema Community Center are getting much-needed help today.



The Yonkers Office for the Aging distributed coupons to eligible seniors at the center to help them make healthier eating choices. The coupons can be used at local farmers markets.



The center says that the coupons are helpful to the seniors because some of them are on food stamps and have difficulties paying their bills.



The seniors have to meet an income requirement to receive the coupons.
