Love Our Neighbors, a program of Love Stanislaus County, has received a grant from SCAN Health to provide senior citizens in Stanislaus County free food from local food pantries each week.
Stanislaus County Senior Citizens can sign up for the free food service by calling 211 (1-877-211-7826) or visit www.stanislaiuscounty211.org. This grant will allow members of the senior citizen community to receive additional support without having to leave their home during the pandemic. The Love Our Neighbors community volunteers will deliver the food pantry groceries at no cost. The volunteers will also adhere to all COVID-19 guidelines and provide a contactless and free service.
“We have so many caring and enthusiastic volunteers willing to help out during this pandemic. This is one way we can reach out and be a good neighbor,” said Gloria Medlin, Love Our Neighbors Coordinator.
This program is a pilot program that is expected to run through March 30, 2021.
