S.O.S (Supporting Our Seniors)

When it comes to food insecurity and hunger among our population of seniors, we need to develop broad and creative approaches that both insure that services are available, in addition to defining and measuring achievable outcomes. It’s critical that we provide coordinated services, flexible program models, compassion and advocacy for a population that sometimes feels helpless to effect change. Each month, S.O.S. staff delivers nutritional emergency food packages to our seniors in need of assistance. The food deliveries supplement our seniors’ home pantry and monthly shopping lists. Seniors are provided with an emergency bag of non-perishable nutritious foods equating to at least 3 days and/or 9 meals.

  • Among the Food Provided:
  • Cold & Hot Cereals
  • Condiments
  • Fish (Cannen/Frozen)
  • Fresh Produce
  • Fruits (Canned)
  • Milk (Shelf-stable/Fresh)
  • Pasta
  • Peanut Butter
  • Rice
  • Vegetables(Canned/Frozen)

Seniors also benefit from government commodities, purchased foods, donated personal care and household supplies, pet food, retail donations of produce, grains and deserts, and a friendly visit from our skilled and compassionate staff.
