Senior Grocery Program
This program is made possible through support from Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation and Feeding America.
Grocery Delivery for Homebound Seniors
Food Finders is offering free home grocery delivery to qualifying seniors. Food Finders is accepting applications for the homebound grocery delivery program. This program will provide 25 pounds of groceries; including protein, dairy and fresh produce, to a homebound senior, twice a month. To qualify, applicants should live in Tippecanoe County, be at least 60 years of age or older, unable to leave their homes due to medical, mobility or transportation issues and meet the income guidelines. Those interested should contact a resource coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 765-471-0062.
Senior Program Volunteers Needed
Food Finders is seeking volunteer groups (minimum 3-4 volunteers) to “adopt” one of five low-income senior housing facilities in Tippecanoe County (Fowler Apartments, Fairington, Jefferson, the Senior Center and Friendship House) to help with contactless grocery deliveries twice per month through 2021. Anyone interested in this opportunity should contact our volunteer coordinator at email@example.com or call 765-471-0062.
Special Senior Hours at the Fresh Market
Food Finders added “senior-only” shopping hours to our Fresh Market, two days a month. These special shopping hours take place twice a month on the first and third Wednesday from 11 am to 12 pm. Senior-only shopping hours provide people age 60 and older with the opportunity to access the pantry when there are no other visitors. During this time, there is an increased volunteer presence to increase the accessibility of the pantry for seniors who need assistance lifting and carrying their grocery items. This is a great opportunity for able-bodied seniors to shop when it’s less crowded and less wait time. More senior-friendly food options and resource coordination are also offered.
