The Elderly Nutrition program provides food to older Americans who are already on a tight income, living off of retirement funds, social security, SNAP (formerly food stamps), etc. The cost of medicine, utilities and rent are a stress on an already tight budget. And sometimes, an older American has to make the choice of paying for medicine or food.
Last year, we distributed over 160,437 meals through bags and boxes of food, through Northeast Iowa Area Agencies on Aging and Senior Center Sites.
Elderly Nutrition Boxes
Elderly Nutrition Boxes are delivered to home-bound seniors who cannot get out to a congregate meal or pantry.
