27,000 seniors struggle with hunger in central and western Oklahoma. The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma is committed to identifying and assisting senior citizens who are at the highest risk of going hungry with the Senior Home Deliveries program and the Senior Mobile Pantries program. 1 in 11 senior adults in Oklahoma struggles with hunger. For more information about Senior Home Deliveries, please contact Keeley White at firstname.lastname@example.org or 405.604.7104
The Senior Home Delivery program is at 26 sites in our service area. Home delivery meal programs partner with Senior Feeding to identify their clients who are high risk for going hungry. The programs then deliver sacks of nonperishable foods to clients once a month. These food sacks are provided to the programs at no cost by the Regional Food Bank and include mostly individual, open-and-eat items. An average of 553 seniors are being served monthly through these partnerships.
