Food Drive for Seniors
November 9 - November 12
The Bay Area is home to some of the wealthiest people on earth but also to thousands of seniors whose income level falls below the federal poverty line. These seniors live with the daily threat of hunger. Being food insecure can worsen chronic health problems that can in turn can lead to hospitalization. Food is a basic human need, and without an adequate diet, people cannot fight off disease and infection. Low-income seniors must often choose between purchasing food and buying medicine.
We will be hosting a food drive to benefit two wonderful organizations whose mission is to help feed our elderly neighbors: Groceries for Seniors in San Francisco and St. Paul’s Pantry of Hope in Oakland. Please bring in any nonperishable foods during our drive if you can. Besides canned foods, we also welcome boxed foods, pastas, and cereals.
