Seniors are important to us! Most seniors who receive Weekly Food Support Bags are caregivers for their grandchildren. Often times they are struggling to provide meals not only for themselves but these children.  In the State of Florida, only 35% of seniors access available government resources.

Our hunger solution is to help seniors find government resources on money, housing, health, consumer protection, and more. By partnering with Community ACCESS Network, we are able to promote economic self-sufficiency for the elderly.  Our volunteers visit the disabled and shut-in elderly and work to:

  • Provide equipment necessary for seniors to apply for benefits, check the status of an application or report a change.
  • Provide assistance to the customer to submit a web application.
  • Provides case status information and outstanding information needed to determine eligibility.
