Going hungry is a terrible thing. There's a program for senior brought to you by the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Seniors 60 years and older are invited to participate in the Commodity Supplemental Food Program.
They can receive a free food kit once a month. This kit is prepared w/ specific nutrional needs such as: meats, canned fruits and vegetables, dry milk and related products, cereals and other grain products plus much more.
Program Requirements for Seniors are:
* California ID or Driver's License
* Proof of Income - SSI or pension (bank statement, check stub, benefit award letter) or
* Medi-Cal Card
The senior can also authorize someone to pick up the kit every month but they must bring that person the first time the register.
The next distribution will be at the Salvation Army in Glendale, 320 East Windsor Rd, 91204.
Next Wednesday, March 31, 2010 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Please pass this along to any seniors you know.
