Resource Details
Description Adopt-A-Senior

Why we do it:
The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank Adopt-A-Senior program’s purpose is to improve the quality of life of seniors with limited incomes by allowing them to stretch their budgets so that they do not have to choose between paying for medications, paying utility bills or transportation or buying food. In today’s harsh economy, many seniors find themselves in need of assistance for the first time in their lives.

How it works:
The Adopt-A-Senior program provides basic shelf-stable food once a month for the period of a year to qualified at-risk seniors. The supplemental package allows them to stretch their limited budget to cover other expenses for medications, utilities and other necessities of life. To qualify for the program, the individual has to be 65 years or older, or 60 or older with a disability.
