I would like to make a comment on the annual food drive for Gleanerís Community Food Bank.
Here at Services for Older Citizens, our Meals on Wheels program supplies a hot nutritional noontime meal five days a week to more than 110 seniors in the Grosse Pointes and Harper Woods.
But what do these seniors do the rest of the time for their nutritional needs? Thanks to Gleaners, SOC can now supply these seniors with additional food packs. Included in these food packs are boxes of cereal, nutritional cereal bars, canned fruit and vegetables, soup, chili, stew, yogurt and much more.
We are proud to be a member of Gleaners Community Food Bank. We encourage everyone to support Gleaners annual food drive by dropping off bags of food at the designated locations.
This program may be called ďKids Helping Kids,Ē but I can tell you that it has made a significant difference in the lives of the homebound seniors in this community. One of them might even be your next door neighbor.
