Every month, our team of staff and volunteers pack groceries for more than 85 older adults living in our service area. Bags include fruit, vegetables, and non-perishable food. Fetch! Clients also choose what kind of milk they would like, including non-dairy options. Each client also chooses from a set of protein options. With these choices, we hope that each client gets a bag of food that they can use and enjoy. For example, a bag may include milk, chicken, mandarins, eggs, broccoli, bread, canned soup, and toilet paper. However, bags change every month and depend on what we are able to purchase and what has been donated to our program.
