Senior Food Boxes

Meals on Wheels of Lancaster and Central PA Food Bank have developed a new partnership initiative. On a monthly basis, non-perishable boxes of food are provided to low-income seniors by utilizing a home-delivered model. This initiative is unique and is currently in its first phase as a 6-month pilot program running from July 2021 through December 2021. The boxes contain goods such as canned goods, shelf-stable milk, juice, cereal and other nutritious foods. These goods are provided by the USDA. To be eligible, a recipient must be age 60+ and their household income less than 130% of the poverty level. The Food Bank does offer a similar service called ElderShare for which income eligibility criteria must meet 150% of the poverty level. To determine your eligibility or to learn more about the service, please contact the Central PA Food Bank: 717-564-1700 or visit https://www.centralpafoodbank.org/who-we-are/our-programs/senior-programs/ or continue scrolling to connect with Meals on Wheels of Lancaster.
