As inflation increases, we see seniors in our community, unfortunately torn between buying a dozen eggs or purchasing their much-needed prescriptions. According to Feeding America, in 2020, 5.2 million seniors aged 60+ face hunger. That’s 1 in 15 seniors or 6.8% of all seniors. Food Insecurity numbers were on the decline in 2020 and 2021 but took a sharp rise in 2021 and 2022.
MOLC has seen an alarming increase in seniors coming to our doors every day. So much so that we have decided to commit every Wednesday to serving our senior population. We will not turn away a senior that is registered with the MOLC.
You can help by donating perishable and non-perishable items such as fresh fruit, vegetables, potatoes and snacks like nuts or you can provide a cash donation that indicates for the Senior’s Food Program.
The food will be collected every Monday and Tuesday this will be distributed to the “Senior” population on Wednesday’s.
Thank you! MOLC’s commitment is always to our community, we wouldn’t be able to support the community without individuals like you.
