When people reach their retirement years, they shouldn't have to worry about having enough to eat.But too many older people, can't be sure that they'll have enough of the right food.So,the Tulsa Community Food Bank is delivering groceries to senior living facilities.
In just one year the project has to double, what they'd expected to provide.
Maggie Hoey says their Senior Servings program has filled a very real need.It helps people stretch their budgets, so they don't have to choose between buying food or medicine.
She also says that delivering food to senior centers helps older people overcome the barriers, that are created by limited transportation options.
The bank's Cindy Cummins says they're working hard to expand their current 13 drop-off locations.They'd like to get food out to seniors in all 24 counties of their service area.That's because it makes life easier on people, who shouldn't have to worry about having food in their kitchens.
The Anderson Charitable Foundation is offering a challenge grant to help the program grow.They've pledged $20,000 to match public donations, dollar for dollar.
