Senior Brown Bag Program

For over 38 years, the Senior Brown Bag has been delivering bags of nutritious supplemental groceries to at risk senior citizens throughout San Joaquin County. Many senior citizens are on a very limited income, often forcing them to choose between healthier food options and paying their bills. The loss of more nutritionally balanced foods leads to health issues and a sharp increase in medical costs among the seniors we serve. To promote healthier choices our bags are filled with 16-18 pounds of supplemental groceries, including 7-9 pounds of fresh produce. Currently serving over 2600 seniors at 24 sites in San Joaquin County.
