The Food Bank is working tirelessly to combat senior hunger in new, creative ways.
As the population of seniors in Northeast Ohio - and the nation - continues to grow, we know we need to be vigilant in protecting this population from hunger. Beyond
senior programs like Senior Markets, the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, Grocery Delivery, and Senior Prepared Meals, the Food Bank is administers or is part of the following program:
Senior Nutrition Education-One Call For Wellness
A coordinated Programming Initiative, One Call provides a one-stop-shop for reaching older adults in Cuyahoga County with evidence-based and evidence-informed programs that promote health and wellness. A limited number of programs are available free to senior centers, senior apartments and other facilities that offer programs to older adults.
