The Senior Outreach Program
Seniors are disproportionately at risk of hunger. In a recent senior survey, over 30% reported having to choose between buying groceries or buying medicine within the last month; 25% reported choosing between paying rent or going grocery shopping.
The Senior Outreach Program is a partnership between Second Harvest and East Tennessee non-profits that serve the elderly. The food bank provides emergency and supplemental food to seniors across 18 counties. Many of those that receive food are shut-ins or residents of group or special needs homes.
