Senior Brown Bag Program
Since 1976, the program 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 2500 seniors at 26 sites in San Joaquin County.
