We Feed Seniors

We Feed Seniors

Many of the over 41,000 seniors living in poverty in our region make tough choices every day.

These choices include purchasing the food they need to stay healthy or the medicine they need to stay healthy and choosing between food and staying warm in the winter or cool in the summer. 

The Food Bank sponsors vital programs to help seniors avoid those choices. 


Second Helping

This program provides supplemental boxes of nutritional foods to homebound elderly in eight of our service counties. We work with our mobile meals partner agencies who deliver the food each month when social security checks and SNAP benefits begin to run out. To donate in support of our seniors, please send us an email at info@secondharvest.org or call us at 704-376-1785.


Fresh Produce Markets

To help insure that our seniors have access to healthy produce, Second Harvest sponsors open air produce markets throughout our region working with local senior programs. A special truck delivers 10–12 fresh produce items and seniors shop for the items they need. For more information on this program email info@secondharvest.org or call us at 704-376-1785.
