Description

Last year, Senior CommUnity Meals served 117,000 meals to more than 2,600 older adults, covering 4,600 square miles in Colorado. Many of the older adults Senior CommUnity Meals feeds are the very farmers who fed our communities years ago, and the meals they receive through this program are the only food they eat. Hunger and good nutrition in older adults is a growing problem. Were it not for Senior CommUnity Meals, many older adults in this area would not have food to eat.

Volunteers of America Senior CommUnity Meals program depends on volunteers to help in meal preparation, meal service, cleanup and socialization with older adults. Please call Debbie Sheffield at (970) 835-8028 (Toll free (866) 416-6942) or email dsheffield@voa.org to find out how you can help.
