Senior Mobile Pantry After a lifetime of working hard, many seniors find themselves on a fixed income struggling with health and nutrition challenges. Senior citizens, ages 60 or older, face a greater risk of hunger due to medical and mobility issues that can hinder their access to food. These challenges that a senior must face every day, often forces individuals to choose between paying for food and buying medicine. The Senior Mobile Pantry is a program which addresses the unique challenges of senior hunger. With your help, we can secure and distribute meals, groceries and fresh produce to senior citizens. More than that, we can give hope, compassion and support to the ones who still have so much to give. Want to volunteer?
