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 every other week, 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.”
