Low-income seniors without their own transportation face unique barriers to accessing fresh food. In partnership with low-income senior housing sites, the Food Bank’s Senior Food Delivery Program provides free food to low-income seniors at their housing facilities monthly or bi-weekly, ideally during weeks when transportation to grocery stores is unavailable. Product is delivered by the Food Bank and distributed in community rooms where seniors choose from a variety of free fresh produce, dairy, and other nutritious items.
“Thank you so much for this food delivery. It was literally a life saver for me as I have no way of getting out and I have no family near me.”
