There are over 55,000 seniors (age 60 and over) in the Las Vegas Valley that are hungry! Most of the time it is because they have no transportation to get to the store, or they don't have enough money to buy groceries. Most of the seniors that get food from our pantry have a monthly income of $550-770! If they receive SNAP (food stamps) it's only $15-20 per month!
Our food pantry is groceries, non-perishable and fresh produce, bread, sometimes meat, that the senior can cook themselves. It is not Meals on Wheels. We have volunteers that deliver the food to the seniors' homes if they cannot come to our pantry. Each senior gets to select the food they want from our pantry, so they get the things they need and don't have to worry about allergies, or medication issues.
The funds we raise will be used to purchase food from our local food bank, Three Square.
Thank you for helping to ensure that seniors don't have to make a choice between eating or medication, doctor's copays, utilities or rent.
