Senior Brown Bag

While there are no age restrictions, these distributions are geared towards local seniors. Most senior citizens are living on a fixed income and find it difficult to adjust to the ever increasing cost of living. Our Senior Brown Bag program provides supplemental groceries to seniors struggling to make ends meet. The bags of groceries include fresh produce and other nutritional essentials. This program hopes to keep our communities valued older population healthy and strong.

What do you receive?

Generally, we provide the following types of food:

  • Breads, cereals, canned goods, snack foods, fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Each household will receive a bag of shelf stable food items, as well as a bag of healthy produce.

How do I qualify?

1. Must attend the distribution held within your local community
2. Must self-certify that you meet the income guidelines

What do you need to provide?
