In partnership with nonprofit organizations that focus on serving senior citizens, the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas established the Senior Food Pantry Network. Food pantries located in area senior citizens centers supply supplemental food to seniors at risk of hunger. This helps seniors use their limited resources to pay for medicine, housing, utility bills, and other basic living expenses.
While at the senior centers, our elderly neighbors can access many other resources in addition to a supplemental food box. Many senior centers offer transportation to the local center, a noon meal, and fun activities for socialization. This partnership enables our organizations to more holistically serve senior citizens.
