HOPE Senior Box Program

HOPE Senior Box Program

The Senior Box Program is designed to improve the health and nutrition of senior citizens. Some seniors are forced to make tough choices between paying their utilities, buying life-saving medications or purchasing food. The goal of the Senior Box Program is to provide a free box of nutritious food where they may have little or no access to food assistance.
