Gerry, age 78, has to choose every month between buying food and paying for prescription medications.
“I’m retired and on a fixed income,” she said. “Harvesters’ help makes a big difference.”
Gerry is not alone. Nearly one out of every ten people who turn to Harvesters’ network for emergency food assistance is a senior citizen. Just like Gerry, many of them are facing difficult choices between buying food and paying for basic necessities like medicine or medical care.
As the senior population grows, Harvesters is addressing needs of the elderly in our community.
