Emergency Meal Boxes Provide Food for Seniors
A rainy day in M
arch didn't stop the senior meal boxes from being picked up and delivered to residents. A couple dozen volunteers helped to pack 350 emergency meal boxes for seniors. The boxes were then picked up the following day by Meals on Wheels' volunteer drivers to be delivered to seniors.
Many times transportation is one of the barriers that seniors face to accessing traditional food assistance programs. This is why Feed My People Food Bank is so grateful for the continued partnership with the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Eau Claire County and the Eau Claire Meals on Wheels Program to directly provide food for seniors.
