Helping you meet your nutritional needs

 

Imagine not being able to drive to the grocery store or being unable to walk through the aisles because of mobility problems? What a scary feeling to worry about not having food in the house. Food insecurity is a terrible problem for many seniors and disabled individuals.

 

How We Can Help

Our volunteers go grocery shopping for individuals 60 and older who do not drive and have mobility issues. Shopping is done every other week at a local grocery store. It’s a great comfort to know that there are caring people in this world who will lend a helping hand to a neighbor in need.

NOW AVAILABLE: ONLINE SHOPPING! We will do the ordering for you!
