Feeding Seniors

More than 29 percent of those receiving assistance from our partner agencies are seniors over age 60.  Seniors are the fastest growing group of food insecure individuals. Through our Senior Nutrition Program, Mid-South Food Bank distributes food to specifically to seniors.  Each Senior Grocery food box contains food for a senior to prepare and consume at home.  There is enough food to supplement their diets for about one month in each box.  Mid-South Food Bank also collaborates with MIFA to provide shelf-stable food that requires little or no preparation for seniors on the waiting list to receive MIFA Meals on Wheels.  To support Feeding Seniors, go to DONATE and choose Feeding Seniors from the "Special Purpose" dropbox.
