Many senior citizens with limited financial resources are forced to make difficult choices. They must decide between buying food and paying for medication or other expenses.
Food Bank for the Heartland’s Food for Seniors Program provides bakery goods to seniors living in low-income housing in Omaha and Council Bluffs. In the Fremont area, we deliver weekly non perishable bags. With deliveries being made bimonthly, this program serves approximately 650 senior citizens in our community and places a strong emphasis on healthy, nutritious food selections.
For more information about the Food for Seniors program, please contact Ericka Smrcka, Director of Programs & Advocacy at 402.905.4803.
